About us

The FIA High Level Panel for Road Safety is being established with the goal of engaging the private sector to raise much-needed new resources and awareness for road safety in response to the global road safety crisis.

The panel brings together an unprecedented coalition of leaders from the global business community, international institutions and NGOs, with the primary objective to raise awareness and to raise funding for road safety actions, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

The Panel aims to act as a catalyst, working with all interested stakeholders, and has a particular focus on making a contribution towards increasing engagement within the private sector. Whilst governments play a critical role in creating policies that are the determinants of road safety, private companies including car manufacturers and the insurance industry also have a vested interest in the safe mobility of people.

The vision and concrete objectives of the Panel are reflected in the 10 point manifesto that was published when the Panel was launched in November 2015 in New York under the auspices of the UN Secretary General.
