  1. Access to research,
  2. Setting up autonomous road safety entities
  3. Professional Certificate Courses and
  4. Global Conferences
  • Furthermore, the partnership with IRF will provide RSAI with access to a vast network of road safety professionals from around the world. This will provide RSAI with opportunities to collaborate, share knowledge, and exchange best practices with other road safety organizations. By doing so, RSAI can learn from others and make significant contributions to improving road safety in Liberia and Africa.

The organization is prepared to work tirelessly to ensure that roads are safe for all users and that road safety is a priority for governments, policymakers, and other stakeholders. To achieve this objective, the Executive Director said that he recognized the need for partnerships and collaborations with other organizations that have expertise and knowledge in the road sector. One such organization is the International Road Federation (IRF), which is a well-established and fully knowledgeable institution in the road sector. The IRF is a global road sector institution that has been working to promote the development and maintenance of better, safer, and more sustainable roads worldwide for over 70 years.

He indicated that the IRF, working for over 70 years in the road sector, recognized the need to build strong collaborations and strategic alliances with organizations like the RSAI that have boots on the ground and are doing exceptional work in places most affected by the negatives of the road sector. As part of the agreement, he further mentioned the yearly in-person training workshops tailored for RSAI, which will be delivered at its training facility in Washington, D.C. The fight for road safety is universal, and building partnerships of support is the best path to finding a lasting solution. He concluded.

    As an organization that understands the need for adequate knowledge in its formative stage, Road Safety Action International is eager to make use of this vital opportunity and will prepare its first list of staff to be trained by the IRF as well as begin assigning IRF mentors to its staff. The IRF database of resources will be linked immediately to individual staff emails as a first step to utilizing the IRF resources.
