Safe & Sustainable Mobility: Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety
Road Safety Project Updates
Through the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety, WRI works with 16 cities across Africa, Asia and Latin America. We provide technical expertise and guidance to implement interventions and policies for safe road infrastructure design and mobility systems.
Since 2015, WRI has performed road safety audits on 690 kilometers of roads. Over 430 kilometers of infrastructure, such as safe public transit systems, bus rapid transit, bike lanes and pedestrian spaces have incorporated WRI recommendations. WRI has also trained more than 11,600 people, working to scale up impact through national and city-wide strategies and policies. Our close partnerships with cities have secured more than $300 million for road safety projects and saved an estimated 35,000 lives.
