Committed to different levels alongside African countries, the Ministry of Equipment, Transport, Logistics and Water of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) will co-host the 1st Forum on Road Safety in Africa. This Forum is a platform for exchanging expertise and good practices in this area. It is also a question of capitalizing on each other's achievements in road safety so that the socio-economic and cultural similarities between African countries are assets and key factors of success.

As road safety is a pivotal issue, creating added value in this field is a real challenge for all governments. The strategic and institutional management of road safety, the financing of strategies, the steering of strategies, the integration of new technologies, capacity building, the integration of road safety in the management of companies, studies and research as well as that openness to the components of non-governmental organizations (civil society) are the main axes that will be discussed in this forum, the first of its kind in Africa.

Moreover, in addition to scientific and technical discussions, the opportunity will be given to meetings and exchanges between institutional actors, professionals and components of civil society. In this context, a large exhibition will be organized to serve as a relay to the panels and to enable stakeholders in African countries to make themselves known, conduct B to B and B to G meetings in order to build relationships and promote their business in the field of road safety.
