The Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference 2008
Held in Adelaide in November 2008, the conference is Australasia's premier annual road safety event, providing a key forum for the exchange of information about current and future road safety initiatives.
In order to promote knowledge transfer in road safety management, the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure organised, in association with AusAID and the World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility, a Regional Road Safety Knowledge and Management Program for public sector professionals with road safety responsibilities in developing countries of Asia.
Nineteen delegates from a range of transport, police and academic institutions in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Vietnam and Papua New Guinea attended the program. A further five World Bank staff based in these countries also attended.
A Program Report provides some context and background, outlines the activity that took place, briefly evaluates the program and provides some recommendations for related activity in the future.
Workshop presentations from 9 November 2009 are available for download. Please note some of these files are quite large.
