The Asia-Pacific Road Safety Observatory’s annual meeting for 2021 was held on 9 to 11 November and featured two days of presentations on road safety data management from the viewpoints of member countries and founding development organizations, and a final day devoted to establishing APRSO’s new governance structure.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) are proud to announce the signing of a 5-year agreement to promote programmes and projects for safe and sustainable transport in Asia and the Pacific.
On day one of the Asia Pacific Road Safety Observatory’s inaugural annual meeting, 130 registered attendees from across 32 member countries and partner organisations gathered on Zoom to discuss the challenge of collecting and collating road safety data for more informed policy making.
On 21st & 22nd April this year ADB will be hosting the first annual meeting of the Asia Pacific Road Safety Observatory. The invite-only virtual event will discuss and seek agreement from 20 APRSO member countries on proposed minimum road safety performance indicators and agree steps towards establishing the APRSO road safety database
