APRSO presents sustainable road safety at the Regional Capacity-Building Workshop for Environmentally Sustainable Transport Workshop

Participants and organizers of the Regional Capacity-Building Workshop for EST Member Countries

On invitation from the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD), APRSO delivered a key presentation and group activity at the Capacity-Building Training Workshop for Environmentally Sustainable Transport (EST) Member Countries on Implementation of, and Country Reporting on, the Aichi 2030 Declaration (2021-2030). The workshop was held at the ADB Headquarters Manila this 22-24 March, attended by senior government officials from across Asia in transport, environment, and urban development.

Since 2005, the annual Regional EST Forum in Asia have been a venue for high-level governmental decision-makers from Asian countries to meet and discuss how to address transport challenges in an environmentally and socially sustainable way. The members adopted the Aichi 2030 Declaration (2021-2030) at the 14th Regional EST Forum in October 2021.

The Declaration aims to catalyze transformational change in the transport sector in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Road safety is one of six goals in the Aichi Declaration, and aims by 2030 to halve the number of deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents in Asia compared to 2020, with specific attention to vulnerable road users.
