Road Safety in Uzbekistan
Our local road safety partner
We support road safety in Uzbekistan through our local partners the National Automobile Club of Uzbekistan (NACU). NACU is a member of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Their mission is to reduce the risk of road traffic crashes and ensure the safety of vulnerable road users.
Running across Uzbekistan is the Silk Road, a key transit corridor for commercial vehicles travelling between Asia and Europe making work-related road risk a serious concern. As a land-locked country, it is also reliant on these roads as well as rail for most of its trade with neighbouring countries. In recent years, the Silk Road has also become popular with tourists, particularly cyclists. In Uzbekistan our aim is to work with these groups of road users to raise awareness of the risks and, using the Safe System approach, work with local stakeholders to ensure roads and routes across the country are safe for everyone. Uzbekistan is a member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program under which six priority road corridors are being upgraded.
