Road Safety in Armenia


Our local road safety partner

We support road safety in Armenia through our local partners the National Road Safety Council (NRSC), a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation established in 2005 bringing together a broad range of local groups, academics, consumers and the road traffic police in a collaborative effort to promote road safety.

The NRSC focus their activities around road safety education; promoting safer road systems; and cooperating with national and international institutions dealing with road safety.

Among the NRSC’s many notable accomplishments is their successful campaign to establish a semi-governmental body with the mission to coordinate road safety actions in Armenia on a national level, which was achieved in 2010 with the establishment of the National Road Safety Council, chaired by the Prime Minister.

Other achievements include campaigning to enforce Armenia’s dormant seat-belt law, resulting in a 20% reduction in road fatalities and 12% decline in casualties in just one year. In 2018, NRSC Director, Poghos Shahinyan, was appointed as the Armenian coordinator under an initiative by the European Commission and World Bank to promote regional cooperation and coordinated efforts to reach UN road safety targets in Eastern Partnership countries.
