The Forum, organised by the Road Safety Fund in partnership with the Commission for Global Road Safety, will address the role of road safety and sustainable transportation in contributing to shared goals for sustainable development, particularly in the context of the forthcoming “Rio+20” UN Conference on Sustainable Development. It will also include a session examining the investment case for funding road traffic injury prevention. The meeting will hear from a range of perspectives, including high level international policymakers and academics, philanthropies, the corporate sector and NGO leaders working in the frontline of the global road injury epidemic.
The event will be held at The Pierre, New York City, on Wednesday 2nd May 2012, and will include an Awards Luncheon for the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent GCVO, who will announce the first recipient of his prestigious annual Decade of Action Award for outstanding achievement in the field of global road traffic injury prevention.

The Donor Forum supports the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and provides an opportunity for organisations and companies that are contributing to road traffic injury prevention to exchange knowledge and experiences and build new partnerships. The invitation-only event will also enable potential new donors to learn more about this global movement working to save five million lives on the world’s roads by 2020.
