Assessing the Maturity of National Road Safety Management Systems

Assessing Maturity

Using theoretical and analytical foundations, this working paper shows the development and use of a maturity assessment framework to support ADB operations and road safety improvement in developing member countries.

In studying several member countries, the authors found that attention should be given to improving regulatory standards and compliance, developing and improving trauma prevention systems, and significantly increasing government investment and priority. The framework allows authorities to analyze and comprehensively develop national road safety efforts without undue focus on one particular aspect, and with the maturity assessment supporting the preparation of a suite of high-quality, strategically oriented road safety project options.
