Background: Road traffic injuries in the Americas today present severe obstacles for social, economic, and political development. Of all the systems with which people have to deal every day, road traffic systems are the most complex and the most dangerous. More than 1.2 million people die on the world’s roads every year, and as many as 50 million others are injury. The economic cost of road crashes and injuries is estimated to be 1% of gross national product (GNP) in low-income countries, 1.5% in middle-income countries and 2% in high-income countries. The global cost is estimated to be US$ 518 billion per year. Last September, at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), the Bank made a commitment to launch a road safety strategy action plan for LAC calling on partners to identify innovative ways to reduce the number of accidents and deaths due to poor road safety. This pioneering action plan will build-up the capacity of developing countries to reduce traffic injury and fatalities and will build on and expand the IDB’s capability to deliver road safety improvements in its operations.

Objective: The objectives of this event are to convene strategic key stakeholders from the private and government sectors to discuss innovative ways to address road safety in the Region within the framework of the Bank’s operations and provide a platform of action for wider engagement in regional road safety at the region of the Americas. 

IDB President Luis Alberto Moreno, will present on the IDB’s role in supporting these important alliances and how the institution is responding to the challenges of road safety within the framework of a "Decade for Action".
