This session showcases the Accountability Toolkit, a set of interlinked tools that help a person to plan and implement an advocacy strategy in a systematic way with the use of data, both qualitative and quantitative. Developed by the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety, the Toolkit also enables you to track government actions in response to your advocacy. The practical application of accountability principles elucidated by the Toolkit provides a new way of thinking and planning for impact-based advocacy.
The Alliance has been equipping NGOs to use various tools, including the Alliance Accountability Toolkit and UN Global Road Safety Week and #CommitToAct campaigns, to hold their governments accountable for the safety of all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists who are most vulnerable to road traffic injuries. We encourage NGOs to base their accountability demands on evidence of what works to save lives on the road. Key interventions including pedestrian facilities, traffic calming, 30 km/h zones, lower speed limits and comprehensive motorcycle helmet law, enforcement, and promotion are well-proven to reduce road deaths and injuries but countries continue to experience debilitating impacts of road crashes due to the lack of implementation of these interventions.
When: Wednesday 22 November 2023, 4:oopm-5:30pm EAT (1:00pm, London; 8:00am New York/Washington, D.C.)
