Managerial and technical capacity weaknesses combined with lack of political ownership of road safety targets and underperforming infrastructure present formidable barriers to progress for many low- and middle-income countries.
There is great complexity in effective road safety and collaborating across institutions is needed to achieve effective interventions. In practice, this means managing road safety in a context where different government agencies - Transport, Health, Justice, Interior, Education, Employment, and Finance – share responsibility and stakeholder engagement is key. Initiatives such as the recent adoption of ISO 39001 now allow more active participation by an even wider range of public and private sector actors.
This workshop has been designed for safety professionals who want a theoretical and practical overview of effective road safety institutions and programs. At the end of the workshop, delegates will have an enhanced grasp of the key characteristics of effective road safety management functions, as well as a sharpened focus on managing road safety projects for results.

From the Director of Qatar TTSC
The Center encourages and promotes continued development in road safety management, as part of the center strategy to develop comprehensive road safety education and training programs in Qatar and the region.
Together with the IRF team, the Center is working in developing the body of knowledge and the set of skills and competencies that are required by road safety professionals in Qatar. This specific program that we have designed with the IRF is truly unique in the region. At a time when Qatar, and many countries in the region, have reaffirmed their attachment to reducing road traffic injuries, I encourage professionals from the region to take advantage of this opportunity to further enhance their safety management skills through exposure to cost-effective practices.
