On 10 April 2014 the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on “Improving global road safety”. The resolution was sponsored by the Russian Federation and co-sponsored by dozens of other countries. Among key decisions, the resolution welcomed the offer of the Government of Brazil to host the 2nd Global High Level Conference on Road Safety in 2015. The conference will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, on 18-19 November 2015.
Brazil would like to have a robust outcome document approved as a result of the Conference – the Brasilia Declaration – through a sound intergovernmental negotiation process involving consultation with other stakeholders.
Member States, UN organizations, intergovernmental organizations, NGOs and private sector entities are invited to share their comments and suggestions related to the zero draft of the “Brasilia Declaration on Road Safety”, which has been prepared through a preliminary process of consultation with the “Friends of the Decade”, in November 2014 and March 2015.
This web-based consultation will remain open until 2 May 2015, after which the negotiation process will be continued on an intergovernmental basis during June 2015, with finalization of the text expected in September/October 2015.
Please send your submissions to the email firstname.lastname@example.org in a Word document. Please include your organization’s details (name, contact details) otherwise your submission will not be taken into consideration. Please refer to specific preamble and operative paragraphs in the Declaration by number (for example: add/exclude/change PP01, OP02, etc).
Submissions received after the deadline of the web-based consultation will not be considered.
All contributions received by email will be published on this website. All comments submitted will be subjected to review prior to them being posted on this web site and may need to be summarized and/or edited in consultation with the submitting party.
YOURS encourages the Youth Network for Road Safety to engage in this consultation process. We will also be working with the network to add comments and recommendations to the declaration.
