About the Toolkit

The Road Safety Toolkit is originally the result of collaboration between the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP), the Global Transport Knowledge Partnership (gTKP) and the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF). Austroads and ARRB provided expert advice during the Toolkit’s development. The Toolkit benefited from reviews and updates in 2021 funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and undertaken by the GRSF with support from iRAP, Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), the Towards Zero Foundation, Global NCAP, Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST) and technical advisors.


Useful reference materials that support content in the Road Safety Toolkit are available here.
