Tanzania has officially launched its Ten Step Plan for Safer Road Infrastructure.

It is the first country in the world to use the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) Ten Steps approach.

UNRSC has created the framework to support countries wanting to improve safety road infrastructure and transport networks.

“As the world-first application of the Ten Step Plan for Safer Road Infrastructure, Tanzania are already world leaders,” said Rob McInerney, CEO of the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP).

“We look forward to collaborating with local and international partners to achieve great things in Tanzania, and providing a benchmark for other countries in the region to learn from and emulate.”

The Ten Step Project, jointly funded by the UNRSF and the Global Road Safety Facility of the World Bank GRSF, brings together the Government of Tanzania through the Ministry of Works, TANROADS and TARURA, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa UNECA, World Bank, International Road Federation, World Road Association, iRAP, Tanzania Road Federation, research institutions, NGOs and industry stakeholders.
