EASST partners contribute recommendations to national road safety audit in Georgia

Georgia, Road Safety Governance and Capacity Building

In 2017, the State Audit Office initiated an efficiency audit around road safety preventative activities. The audit examined policies and procedures aimed at preventing road traffic crashes within Georgia’s governmental bodies. The report highlighted several areas which require improvement.

As members of the working party, EASST partners, the Partnership for Road Safety presented results of their own research as well as offering comments and recommendations based on international best practice and work done with other partner organisations to improve road safety in the country.

The recommendations have been included in the audit report, which includes specific recommendations aimed at individual government departments including the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Economics and Sustainable Development, the Transport Department of Tbilisi City Hal and the Roads Department of Georgia.
