This new Strategy sets out the key directions recommended by international organizations and global experts for successful and sustainable long-term road safety management in Georgia. While progress has been achieved against rising levels of registered motor vehicles, new steps are needed to allow Georgia to achieve substantially improved results and sustained success in its road safety activity.
In line with identified effective practice, Georgia’s road safety activity into the future will be underpinned by the identification and measurement of the key road safety problems, a planned, systematic, results-focused response and long-term investment. Implementation of the Strategy will require effective and carefully orchestrated inputs of key governmental agencies, which acknowledge road safety as part of their core activity. Together with activity in the business sector and civil society, a new shared responsibility for road safety in Georgia is being forged.
Developed through capacity review and in consultation with the key governmental partners and road safety stakeholders, this Strategy sets a new long-term vision and goal for road safety in Georgia. In addition, an action plan will be developed in compliance with the objectives of the strategy.
As the main governmental agencies with key shared responsibilities for road safety and road traffic injury prevention, we present this Strategy to guide future road safety work in Georgia and to set out our shared responsibility for achieving better results, alongside our business sector and the community.
