Blog » 2013 – Moldova, Development of casualty reduction Partnerships in Chisinau and Tiraspol.pdf
Joint project on road safety has been assisted by the Support to Confidence Building Measures Programme, funded by the EU and co-funded and implemented by the UNDP. The final aim of this project was to form a partnership between authorities responsible of road users’ safety, a partnership that could be useful in solving the existing problems in road safety.
The project opened up new relations between municipalities, local agencies and civil society networks in fighting for road safety and reducing the number of accidents. The new formed partnerships, from each municipality, collaborate and will continue to support actions initiated to raise the level of safety in traffic. This was possible on an active collaboration existing between the Automobile Club of Transnistria (ACT), the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM), and the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST). Thanks to EASST – a network of successful campaigns working in road safety, operating within EU Eastern Partnership countries, the project activities have been always guided by both national and international experts.
The overall objective of the Support to Confidence Building Measures program is to promote and build confidence between both banks of the Nistru River. This project contributed to the confidence building between the two banks of Nistru river through a strong cooperation approaching a major issue of common interest and the cause of poverty of many families - deaths caused by road accidents. ACM and ACT involved in project activities, such as training, round tables, working meetings, road safety events and social campaigns local municipal stakeholders (National Patrolling Inspectorate, Municipal Transport Department, Civil Protection and Exceptional Situations Service, Ministry of Health – National Scientific-Practical Centre for Emergency Medicine from Chisinau, General Directorate for Education, Youth and Sport and Administration, Road Police, Driving School from Tiraspol, as well as civil society and media) interested in road safety. That led to friendly sharing experience between representatives of the partnerships from 2 banks (e.g. police forces exchanged experience on gathering and analysis of statistical data and conducting special operations in traffic). The project helped to consolidate the dialogue and partnerships between non-government and municipal authorities, by creating 2 local partnerships - in Chisinau and Tiraspol, with the aim to reduce the number of road accidents and victims.
