Road Safety in Georgia
Our local road safety partners
The Partnership for Road Safety is a non-profit organisation that promotes road safety and sustainable urban transport through research, advocacy, educational and awareness raising projects in Georgia. It was established in 2006 with support of the FIA Foundation, the British Council and local Georgian organisations concerned with the growing number of road traffic crashes and fatalities.
Awareness raising campaigns and targeted stakeholder engagement through multipronged approaches are at the core of their approach. The Partnership has conducted numerous wide-scale projects and campaigns, including providing road safety education to over 100 local schools and offering technical expertise and policy advice to municipalities in the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans to improve public transport, promote walking and cycling, and support mobility of vulnerable populations.
The advocacy work of the Partnership is carried out in close coordination with local organisations active in the field of urban mobility and sustainability, such as the Alliance for Safe Roads, Iare Pehkit, Tbilisi Bicycle Club, Urban Lab and others. Together they co-organise regular civic actions on urban liveability, pedestrian and cyclist safety and engage with national and local level stakeholders, advocating for the necessary legal and administrative adjustments in line with meeting the goals of the transport-related objectives of the EU Association Agreement.
