Safer Roads at Rio+20

The Make Roads Safe campaign has launched a call for prioritisation of road safety and sustainable transport to be part of the policy outcomes of next year's Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development. Governments will meet in Rio in June 2012 to update the international sustainability agenda, twenty years on from the Rio 'Earth Summit' of 1992. The last equivalent meeting, in Johannesburg in 2002, played an important role in identifying priorities for the practical implementation of the Millennium Development Goals.
