Overcoming Safe Driving Challenges in Africa and Middle East

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), over 1.35 million deaths each year are attributable to road traffic incidents. The majority (90%) occur in low- and middle-income countries, even though these countries have just 54% of the world’s vehicles. These figures do not consider the ensuing emotional and economic trauma to individuals and families, not to mention the economic long-term GDP impact on countries.

This webinar, presented by eDriving in conjunction with the AMENA Network and the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), put the road safety challenges in Africa and the Middle East into context, and examine the factors that contribute to the poor road safety record in these regions.

The Swiss Re Group, one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, insurance, and other forms of insurance-based risk transfer, discuss the critical link between road safety performance and insurance, and examine how technology can play a role in effective driver risk management.

TotalEnergies, a broad energy company that produces and markets energies on a global scale, share their experience of implementing a safe driving programme in Africa over the last decade.

You will learn:

  • The economic impact of road safety in Africa and the Middle East
  • The contributing factors to the region’s poor road safety record
  • Swiss Re’s perspective on driver risk and insurance
  • TotalEnergies’ experience of managing road safety
  • How technology can play a role in the successful management of road safety globally
