Launch of the 7th UN Global Road Safety Week

The National Road Safety Council, along with key partners, launched the 7th UN Global Road Safety Week at the Dr. Antonio Agostinho Neto Square in Ausspannplatz. This year’s theme is sustainable transport, with a focus on the need for governments to facilitate a shift to walking, cycling, and public transport.

During his speech at the event, the Minister of Works and Transport, Hon. John Mutorwa, expressed his appreciation for the efforts and contributions made by all ministries, offices, and agencies of Namibia in providing leadership for the implementation of the assigned pillar activities. He emphasized the importance of stakeholder collaborations as the underlying principle for executing their work, stating that only through such partnerships can they achieve the goal of sustainable transport and safer roads for all.

The UN Global Road Safety Weeks are regularly scheduled events mandated by the United Nations. They provide an opportunity for nations and communities around the world to engage in a variety of activities aimed at promoting road safety awareness and developing appropriate responses to the challenges faced. While these events have both global and regional significance, they are primarily focused on national and local levels. This year’s edition will be observed from 15 to 21 May.
