United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA)

Mr Christian Friis Bach
Under Secretary-General of the United Nations Executive Secretary, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe

Every year 1.25 million people die around the world as a result of road crashes and 20 to 50 million more are injured. It is the number one cause of death among young people aged 15-29 and takes the lives of 500 innocent children each day. With the Sustainable Development Goals recently adopted, the international community has committed to halve road traffic fatalities by 2020. This will require accrued efforts from all stakeholders and countries.

Jean Todt, United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety, and Christian Friis Bach, Executive Secretary of UNECE, which is the custodian of the UN road safety conventions and agreements, will present on the how the United Nations and road safety agencies are tackling this pandemic.
