The first Global Conference on Road Safety was held in Moscow in 2009, where Kunhadi was the only delegate from Lebanon, and led to the implementation of the Decade for Action on Road Safety 2011-2020, a ten-year action plan to halve the number of traffic victims globally. 

The conference that will take place on November 18 and 19 in Brazilia, will gather around 1500 delegates from more than 100 countries, including ministers of health transportation and interior, senior officials from the United Nations agencies, representatives of civil society and business leaders to review the progress in the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, define the next steps at global and national levels, and set a milestone in road safety.

Main topics will include:

– the improvement of law enforcement on road safety
– the improvement of roads and safe infrastructures
– the enhancement of vehicles safety
– the enhancement of emergency trauma care systems for traffic victims
