An evaluative review into the success of the TRACECA Road Safety II project, organised by EASST partner, the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM), and the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) has confirmed that the project has successfully “contributed to enhancing the technical knowledge and capacity of the project stakeholders on road safety issues”.

Using the Participatory Project Review (PPR) approach, the workshop aimed to:

  • Determine to what extent the objective and expected results of the project have been achieved in compliance with agreed rules, standards, and expectations;
  • Identify lessons (positive and negative) for improved programming and coordination;
  • Inform decision-making and strategic planning for on-going or future road safety projects and come up with an action plan based on the recommendations of the review.

Participants agreed that such projects were crucial for not-only Moldova but for the region as a whole and generated ideas for how they can now take the work forward and make it more sustainable.

The event was well attended by representatives from the EU Delegation to Moldova, the Global Road Safety Partnership, TRACECA in Moldova, the Ministry of Transport and Road Infrastructure, Road State Administration, the Municipal Transport Department of Chisinau, REPEMOL project, National Patrolling Inspectorate and Informational Technologies Service of Ministry of Internal Affairs, the involved NGOs and the ‘Universul’ Lyceum.

The TRACECA Road Safety II project, funded by the European Commission “brings together governments and civil society to actively promote the safety and security of road users, the public, property, and the environment within the Europe-Caucasus-Asia region’s transport corridor.”

EASST is an implementing partner along with the Global Road Safety Partnership, the Red Cross and Red Crescent societies and road safety civil society organizations in the beneficiary countries. For more information visit the Global Road Safety Partnership website here.
