Qatar participates in UN conference on road safety

Doha: The State of Qatar, represented by the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC) at the Ministry of Interior, participated in the Fourth Global Ministerial Conference of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC), which was held via videoconferencing. 

During the conference, the State of Qatar was represented by Secretary-General of the NTSC Brigadier Mohamed Abdullah Al Malki (pictured), Qatar’s representative at the UNRSC. 

The conference discussed the issue of adopting a new resolution on road safety by the UN General Assembly, considering the sustainable development goals integral and indivisible, and recognising the importance of achieving the goals related to road safety included in the 2030 agenda, as well as the emphasis on the document that was previously approved at the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, which was held in Stockholm in February. 

 

The UN team also discussed a call for member states and the international community to intensify national, regional, and international cooperation and commit to political responsibility at the highest possible level to improve road safety. 

During the conference, the period 2021-2030 was declared as the second decade of work for road safety, to reduce deaths and injuries due to traffic accidents by at least 50 percent by 2030.
