KMUTT : Safety and SDG 2030

Safety is one of a key role for sustainability which related to health .Road safety targets have been included in the final text of the new Sustainable Development Goals adopted by UN member states in New York.A specific stand-alone target in the Health Goal to reduce road traffic fatalities by 50% by 2020 and a target on sustainable urban transport in the Cities Goal have been approved, in a landmark achievement for the global road safety community. The SDGs designed to 'stimulate action in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet'.

The final wording of the targets, which will be formally adopted by world leaders at a special summit in New York is:
Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages:
3.6. By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents
(In the Health Goal, the stand-alone road safety target is lined up alongside other major priorities including maternal and under-5 mortality, AIDS and universal health coverage. The 2020 SDG target is far more ambitious than the 2020 goal set for the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety to 'stabilise and reduce' road deaths.)
Goal 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable:
11.2. By 2030, provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons.
