What we are doing

Africa is the continent with the most road crash fatalities and injuries despite being the least motorized. Road safety is one of the major issues facing the transition to sustainable mobility, or the integration of active mobility and public transport in the future mobility planning. TRANS-SAFE is an EU Horizon-2020 project that involves national, regional, and city-level demonstrations to test innovative and integrated Safe System solutions, complemented by a comprehensive toolbox, capacity development, policy support, and replication activities. The project brings together a consortium of highly committed cities, road safety agencies, and European and African experts to maximize impact. Building on numerous synergistic projects, networks, and a strong technical experience among partners, the consortium will deliver an ambitious project through highly effective and innovative approaches to sustainable road safety development, thereby ensuring that road safety systems and interventions from this project deliver on the recommendations of the Road Safety Cluster of the African-EU Transport Task Force, adopted in 2020. The consortium members have experience and expertise in Africa-related research as well as development-related research in collaboration with local actors in various countries of Africa at many levels. Ultimately, the project will help deliver on the Joint EU-Africa Strategy (JAES) and advance countries’ progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

What we are achieving

The project addresses road safety in actionable 5(I)s vision: 1. Inform by enhancing knowledge of road crashes' causes and risk factors and improve capabilities to practically use tools to plan, assess, implement and operate road safety solutions. ICLEI is leading the dissamination and exploitation of the project results and the peer-exchange activities between Africa and Europe. 2. Inspire the integration of a holistic Safe System approach into local, regional and national road safety strategies by providing the needed guidance on data, methodologies and best practices. 3. Initiate road safety assessment and management systems by guiding relevant stakeholders in partner cities and countries to adopt internationally established system standards. 4. Implement reference models for road safety innovations with a high level of replicability by implementing demonstration actions to test innovative, safe system technologies and services. 5. Impact the regional and global sustainable road safety goals by evaluating the project`s demonstration actions and deriving implementable recommendations that can be integrated into policy, funding, operation, research and business practice.
