Safe Way Right Way Background

In Africa, three policy decisions provide the mandate and framework to the Initiative. The New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) has focused Africa’s development strategy on twenty major international transit and trade corridors as the entry point to foster trade and economic growth and integration, and the Africa Economic Commission (UNECA) is mandated to lead its regional effort. The 2007 Accra Declaration by the African ministers of transport and health resolved to half the number of road accident fatalities in Sub Saharan Africa by 2015. Finally, the UN General Assembly launched a 2011-2020 Decade of Action for Road Safety.

The Initiative replicates the road safety project along all NEPAD corridors, starting with the Northern Corridor, in the Kenya - Uganda segment. It serves a market of 124 million people and is also the primary access for part of Central African Republic, Eastern Democratic republic of Congo, Sudan and Southern Ethiopia. The Central Corridor linking Cameroon, Chad and CAR, and serving as the backbone of the Central Africa Economic Community, is the second project. Further sequencing of corridor projects will be made in consultation with partners to constitute the flagship Initiative of Africa Decade of Action for Road Safety

In January 2010 the World Bank and TOTAL entered into a partnership to use their combined knowledge and experience in Africa to tackle issues relating to road safety along Africa’s major transit corridors. This partnership resulted in the creation an agency known as Africa Road Safety Corridors Initiative (ARSCI) which was formerly launched on 27 April 2011 in Malaba town on the Kenya / Uganda boarder. Present during the launch were senior representatives from the Kenya and Uganda governments and TOTAL (Kenya and Uganda) and World Bank officials (see photo gallery).

Africa Road Safety Corridors Initiative builds on the principle that road crash injuries are predictable and preventable, road safety is for all road users, an accountable national lead agency that prompts encourages and assists the road safety stakeholders for evidence-based road safety action, with targets, monitoring and evaluation is key. Progressively stakeholders will build and share knowledge and increase the ownership of an Africa-specific road safety experience.
