This project is funded by the EU and co-funded and implemented by the UNDP. Its goal is to form a partnership between the authorities directly responsible for the safety of all road users, which would be effective in dealing with the existing road safety problems. The problem of road accidents also persists in Tiraspol, this is the reason why we have joined our forces with our partners across the Nistru river.
The project opens up new links between municipalities, local agencies and civil society networks acting in fighting for road safety and reducing the number of accidents. It is based on an active cooperation between the Automobile Club of Transnistria (ACT) and the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM), in partnership with the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST). Thanks to EASST, which is a network of successful road safety campaigns and which operates in the EU Eastern Partnership countries, the project will be permanently directed by experts inside and outside Moldova.
The overall objective of the project is to promote and improve confidence. This will be achieved by a cooperation aimed at addressing a major problem of common interest and cause of poverty of many families - deaths and road accidents. The project will strengthen the dialogue and partnerships between non-governmental actors and local agencies/municipalities, at the same time creating several platforms representative at local level to reduce the number of accidents.
This project allows for the joint training of civil society leaders, opinion makers, media and public agencies on both sides of the Nistru river. The expected final result of the project is to establish local partnerships in order to reduce the number of accidents in Tiraspol and Chisinau, as well as to create a common platform to monitor the road safety performance.
