Road safety problems are increasing in many ESCAP member countries and effective action needs to be taken if the situation is not to continue deteriorating. This publication demonstrates how safety activities can be developed by implementing intervention in three stages: Stage I - Development of a coordinated approach; Stage II - Development and implementation of priority action plan; and Stage III - Development of five-year national road safety programmes. The activities necessary during each stage are outlined and guidance on funding to cover technical assistance and intervention is provided. A case study of Fiji is presented in annexes.
