Asia, Central: A regional road safety action plan

IMC Worldwide, in partnership with Safege and Grant Thornton, is implementing the Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia (TRACECA) Regional Road Safety Action Plan project, 2014-2015.

The TRACECA began as an EU programme launched in 1993 to develop a transport corridor from Europe to China, via the Black Sea, the Caucasus, the Caspian Sea and Central Asia. It aims to strengthen economic relations, trade and transport links between the EU and the programme’s participating countries.

The Regional Road Safety Action Plan, meanwhile, aims to ensure that the corridor transport system actively promotes the safety, security and protection of users, property, general public and the environment that might be involved in or affected by this road transport system.

IMC’s team, based in Kiev (Ukraine) and Yerevan (Armenia) is providing technical assistance to the 13 beneficiary countries of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan in implementing the necessary measures to upgrade national legislation, regulations and procedures, and to assist the key national organisations in achieving international standards relating to road safety.

This project will base its work on the needs analysis performed by the previous EU-funded road safety project, which resulted in the preparation of an action plan with prioritized measures to be undertaken at national level for each beneficiary country.
