Europe, Regional: Enhancing road safety for CAREC countries

The aim of this 20-month project is to produce a comprehensive road safety strategy and action plan for the ten CAREC member countries of Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

The project involves extensive stakeholder engagement in each member country in order to agree objectives and actions to reduce casualties on their road networks.

The main project focus will be on evaluating existing road safety capacity and from this develop training materials to ensure road safety is embedded in their design procedures and policies.

This project also complements IMC’s current EC-funded TRACECA regional road safety project with 6 countries common to both projects.


  • strategic analysis of existing road safety conditions in CAREC  member countries and the identification of gaps, deficiencies,  and potential road safety improvements
