Ministers agreed on future road safety targets at the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety on 19 February in Stockholm

The 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, held on 19 and 20 February in Stockholm, was dedicated to Achieving Global Goals 2030 and sharing successes and lessons from implementation of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020.

The Conference began with a statement by His Majesty the King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf. More than 1,700 participants took part in the grand opening.

On the first day of the Conference, ministers from more than 80 countries agreed on the future road safety targets. The outcome document, called the “Stockholm Declaration”, was presented by the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure, Mr. Tomas Eneroth.

The Stockholm Declaration builds on the Moscow Declaration of 2009 and the Brasilia Declaration of 2015, UN General Assembly and World Health Assembly resolutions. The Stockholm Declaration paves the way for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Declaration also reflects the recommendations of the conference’s Academic Expert Group and its assessments of progress made during the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 and its proposals for a way forward.
