Fifth UN Global Road Safety Week in Nepal

Fifth UN Global Road Safety Week in Nepal

As requested by the United Nations General Assembly, the Fifth United Nations Global Road Safety Week was held throughout Nepal from 6-12 May 2019.   The UN Road Safety Weeks have been held in four times  prior to 2019; in 2007, 2013, 2015 and 2017.

In Nepal, however, road safety week was first celebrated in an organized manner in 2013 through the involvement of Nepal Automobiles Association (NASA).

This year the UN launches “#SpeakUp to Save Lives” to call for higher demand of strong leadership for road safety in governments, UN agencies, and civil societies, and immediate actions are needed to protect lives. In the meantime, it inspires NGOs, foundations, schools and universities to resolutely implement the education and meaningful intervention in road safety. As the United Nations has announced 2011-2020 to be the Road Safety decade, this program has a huge importance,  as this Road Safety Week is the last one in the Road Safety decade timeframe.

The UN, have proposed for a UN Ministerial Conference in February 2020, have not revealed their strategy thereafter.

Researches have shown that every year, 1.4 million people have been losing their life to road crashes around the globe. The situation, is even worse in the context of Nepal. It is much more of a sensitive topic than the fact that 3000 people have lost their lives to the accidents yearly. The fact that road crashes is the first cause of untimely death in Nepal. This is one of the many reasons as to why our economic and social aspects are being ruined.

5th UN Global Road Safety Week in Nepal


  • Rally for Road Safety

The rally for road safety was organized in May 4. Around 100 women riders participated with their bikes and scooters. The rally, that started in Minbhawan ended in the Scouts parking situated in Lainchaur.

The program, which was conducted by Institute of Automotive Engineering (IAE) – Nepal, in collaboration with the Kathmandu University; had over 200 participants from Mechanical, Automotive and Civil Engineering. Honourable Member of Parliament Mr. Yogesh Bhattarai inaugurated the conference in which 22 presenters presented on different issues. The programme was coordinated by NASA Nepal, co-organised with Nepal Aeromechanics Federation.

  • Youths for Road Safety

Another program under the Road Safety Week was Youths for Road Safety, where various college-going students were each asked to present an innovative idea for road safety.                                                                                     

  • Future Leaders for Road Safetybecause of numerous road traffic crashes.

RMR Foundation in collaboration with NASA Nepal organized a program titled “Future Leaders for Road Safety”. The program was conducted among the students of Kohinoor School, Balaju.


On the first week of May, Freedom Campaign Nepal conducted an interaction program in Kathmandu on the topic ‘Protecting Children from Injuries and Accidents’. Presently, all over the world, children have been victims of road traffic accidents in numungous numbers. In the context of Nepal, this is possibly the first formal program related to road safety, in which Safe Kids Worldwide, Kathmandu Medical College, NASA Nepal along with other representatives were participating.


Along with this, organisations such as Road Safety Society have conducted various other programs on the occasion of the Fifth United Nations Global Road Safety Week. As a result of all these efforts, it seems certain that there will be a positive impact on the Road Safety status of Nepal.


  • Conclusion

These were just a few corrective and creative programs conducted from a citizen’s level related to a specific field. It is believed throughout the world that the three bases of road safety are Engineering, Enforcement and Education. Among these three bases, the first two are already with the Government of Nepal. However, with government bodies dealing with solving the problem of unmanaged daily transport, we really need to consider how high our expectations should be.

It is almost end of the  Road Safety decade 2011-2020, as Nepal Government haven’t established a Road Safety Council to solve these problems in an organized manner.

Among the five pillars of road safety, various occupation groups, volunteers and business groups are working on improving the fourth pillar (road user behaviour). But there is a great need of support from Nepali Media, Parliamentary Members and Human Rights Activists. In recent days, Nepali citizens, communities and the entire nation is having to pay a price

देशका विभिन्न स्थानमा दीप प्रज्वलन

देशका विभिन्न स्थानमा दीप प्रज्वलन

काठमाडौं – सडक दुर्घटनाका पीडितहरुको स्मरणमा नेपालमा पनि विभिन्न कार्यक्रम सम्पन्न भएको छ । हिजो आइतबार आज ‘वल्र्ड डे अफ रिमेम्ब्रेन्स फर रोड ट्राफिक भिक्टिम्स’ अर्थात ‘सडक दुर्घटना पीडित स्मरण विश्व दिवस’ मनाइएको हो ।

नेपालमा पनि विभिन्न संघ संस्थाहरुले स्मरण कार्यक्रमको आयोजना गरेका छन् । नोभेम्बर महिनाको तेस्रो आइतबारलाई यो दिवसको रुपमा मनाइन्छ ।

नेपालमा पनि नासा फाउन्डेसन लगायतका संघ संस्थाहरुले विगत केही वर्ष यता यो दिवस मनाउदै आएका छन् । यस पटक पनि नासा फाउन्डेसनको संयोजन, स्वतन्त्रता अभियान नेपाल र अन्य विभिन्न गैरसरकारी तथा निजी संस्थाहरुको व्यवस्थापनमा नेपालका विभिन्न ९ स्थानमा दीप प्रज्वलन गरियो । सडक दुर्घटनामा ज्यान गुमाउनेहरुको सम्झनामा दीप प्रज्वलन गरिएको हो ।

नासा नेपालले धुलिखेलको काठमाडौं विश्वविद्यालयमा, स्वतन्त्रता अभियान नेपाल, नेपाल इञ्जिनियरिङ एसोसिएसन, आरएमआर फाउन्डेसन र रोड सेफ्टी नेपालले काठमाडौंको माइतीघर मण्डलामा, इन्स्टिच्युट अफ अटोमोटिभ इन्जिनियर्स (आईएई) नेपालले काठमाडौंको बौद्धमा, एचिभर्स जर्नी र विमेन एन्टरप्रेन्युअर एसोसिएसनले पोखरामा, सूचना तथा मानव अधिकार नेपालले नेपालगञ्जमा, सुरक्षित यात्रा अभियान नेपालले बुटवलमा र सिर्जनशील विकास अभियानले नुवाकोटमा दीप प्रज्वलन लगायतका विभिन्न कार्यक्रम गरेका छन् ।

नोभेम्बर महिनाको तेस्रो आइतबारलाई द डे अफ रिमेम्ब्रेन्स फर रोड ट्राफिक भिक्टिमका रुपमा मनाइन्छ । उक्त दिवसका कारण सर्वसाधारणले समेत सडक दुर्घटना, यसको असर र मूल्य तथा यसको न्युनिकरणका लागि अपनाइएका विभिन्न विधि तथा प्रक्रियाको बारेमा आवश्यक जानकारी प्राप्त गर्न सक्छन् । त्यसैगरी अब गरिनुपर्ने आवश्यक कार्ययोजनाका वारेमा समेत सबैले जानकारी लिन सक्छन् । यो वाहेक सडकलाई अझै सुरक्षित बनाउनका लागि सरकार तथा समाज सबैको जिम्मेबारीका वारेमा समेत बुझ्ने अवसर प्रदान गर्छ ।

दुर्घटनामा ज्यान गुमाएकाहरुको सम्झनामा सर्वप्रथम सन् १९९३ देखि बेलायतबाट यस प्रकारको दिवस मनाउन थालिएको थियो । सन् १९९५ मा युरोपियन फेडरेसन अफ रोड ट्राफिक भिक्टिम्स (एफइभिआर) अन्तर्गतका विभिन्न देशले यो दिवसलाई संयुक्त रुपमा मनाउन शुरु गरे । शुरुमा यसलाई ‘युरोपियन डे अफ रिमेम्बरेन्स’ को रुपमा मनाइएको थियो ।

तर पछि अफ्रिका, दक्षिण अमेरिका र एसियाका विभिन्न देशले समेत मनाउन थाले । सन् २००० मा पोप र अन्य धार्मिक समुदायका नेताहरु समेत यसलाई मनाउन थाले र सन् २००० देखि यसलाई ‘वल्र्ड डे’ को रुपमा मनाउन थालियो भने नेपालमा विगत ३ बर्ष अघि देखि नासाको अगुवाईमा विभिन्न संघ संस्थाहरुको सहकार्यमा यो दिवस मनाइदै आएको छ ।

संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघले सन् २००५ को अक्टोबर २६ मा यसको स्वामित्व ग्रहण गरेको थियो । त्यसपछि राष्ट्र संघकै अगुवाइमा यो कार्यक्रम संचालन भइरहेको छ ।

सडक दुर्घटनाका कारण ज्यान गुमाएकाहरुको सम्झना र उक्त दुर्घटनाका कारण आफन्तजनले भोग्नुपरेका भावनात्मक तथा व्यावहारिक परिणामको दुर्दशालाई न्यूनीकरण गर्नका लागि केही सहयोग पुगोस् भन्ने यसको उद्देश्य हो ।

सन् २०२० सम्म अहिले भइरहेको सडक दुर्घटनाबाट हुने मृत्यु र अंगभंगको संख्यालाई आधामा झार्ने उपायका साथ संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघले कार्य गरिरहेको छ ।

संसारका विभिन्न देशमा यस प्रकारको दिवस मनाइन्छ । सडक सुरक्षामा आवश्यक सुधार गर्दा पनि विश्वमा अहिले पनि हताहती र घाइते हुनेहरुको संख्या घटेको छैन । सडक दुर्घटनाका कारण प्रत्येक वर्ष लगभग १४ लाख मानिहरुको मृत्यु हुने र ती मध्ये ९० प्रतिशत मध्यम र निम्न आय भएका देशका नागरिक हुने गरेको छ । १५ देखि २९ बर्ष उमेरका युवाहरुको मृत्युको मूख्य कारण नै सडक दुर्घटना हुने र यसरी हुने दुर्घटना मध्ये लगभग आधा संख्या पैदल यात्रु, साइकल यात्री र मोटरसाइकल यात्रीको हुने गरेको छ ।

The FIA is dedicated to improving the safety of every day road users throughout the world.

The FIA is dedicated to improving the safety of every day road users throughout the world.

An estimated 1,3 million people are killed each year on the roads worldwide and 50 million injured. That corresponds to 3,000 fatalities every day, including 500 children: an unacceptable human, economic and social cost for our societies.



To combat this, the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile has created the FIA Action for Road Safety campaign, employed the UN’s Safe System Approach and strengthened cooperation with motoring and sporting member clubs via the deployment of the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme.


In May 2011, when the United Nations launched the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety with a goal to save five million lives and reduce road-related injuries by 50 million worldwide over the next 10 years, the FIA created the Action for Road Safetycampaign. This campaign supports the UN initiative through its global network of motoring and touring clubs and its involvement with motor sports. The FIA Foundation welcomed this initiative and agreed to fund the FIA Strategic Road Safety Programme with an endowment of one million euros per annum.


To further tackle this global crisis, the FIA actively supports the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, calling on governments at a national and international level to embrace the Safe System Approach and promote action on capacity building, safe drivers, safer vehicles, safer infrastructure and post-crash response.



The efforts of the FIA in these fields are complemented by the activities of the FIA’s motoring clubs, which have become leading voices for road safety in their respective countries, encouraging governments to make road safety a national priority.



The FIA Road Safety Grant Programme supported by the FIA Foundation welcomes initiatives from FIA member clubs in promoting concrete actions in the five main areas of the UN Decade of Action global plan. Since 2012, the Grant Programme has awarded over 230 innovative initiatives in more than 75 countries. These projects cover several activities such as awareness campaigns, educational programmes, trainings or researches on a wide range of topics, among them, child safety, post-crash care, distracted driving or vulnerable road users’ protection.

For any further information about the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme, please contact Priscilla Le Lièvre Grants Coordinator (plelievre@fia.com).



In its role of observer at the UN Economic Commission for Europe/ Geneva (UNECE) the FIA is actively supporting the work of the Working Party on Road Traffic Safety (WP.1), the only permanent body in the United Nations system that focuses on improving road safety globally.

With the view of facilitating international cooperation and strengthening global coordination with UN agencies and other international stakeholders working on road safety, the FIA is an active member of the UN Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC).

The FIA is contributing to the work of IRTAD,  the International Road Traffic and Accident Database, established at OECD as a mechanism for providing an aggregated database in which international accident and exposure data are collected on a continuous basis.

As a global campaigner the FIA plays  a leading role in promoting awareness and responsibility not only among motorists, but all road users through education, campaign  and information. Campaigns are aimed at encouraging safe driving practices as well as lifelong learning and training, targeting the different risk groups.

Campaigns (link to sessions “campaigns”) are aimed at encouraging safe driving practices as well as lifelong learning and training, targeting the different risk groups.


The FIA promotes vehicle design that protects the driver and the occupants as well as vulnerable users. Cofounder and member of the EuroNCAP programme, the FIA and its member clubs cooperate with other CAPs globally to improve vehicle safety and to provide consumers with an independent assessment of the safety performance of their vehicles.

Member of the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), the worldwide regulatory forum related to safety and environmental aspects of the vehicles. 

As new technologies are creating greater opportunities for road safety with more intelligent systems being developed for road vehicles, the FIA is fully committed to encouraging the deployment of the most promising active safety solutions to improve road safety.


Safer road infrastructure is a key element of effective strategies to reduce the rising trend of road fatalities. The FIA and its members started and continue to support the iRAP program, operating in more than 70 countries, in partnership with governments and non-government organisations to inspect high-risk roads and develop star ratings and safer road investment plans.


Prompt, good-quality first aid can save the lives of many people injured in road traffic crashes.

Building on the established cooperation with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the world's largest humanitarian network, the FIA promotes initiatives in regions of the world aimed at raising the awareness of the importance of first aid knowledge in giving immediate assistance to victims of road accidents.

Road Safety

Road safety is the most concerned and sensitive issue of world motor sports. That’s why national and international federations related with motor sports have been campaigning for road safety. Today motor sports have been able to dedicate message in different countries and sectors. It has become the tool for professionalism, social harmony and transformation, tourism promotion. In response to that, motor sports have become the basis for tourism promotion in paradise and beautiful country Nepal. But road safety is the common agenda in all over the world.

The past events of NASA were highly emphasized on road safety. The act of spending some portion of ‘Team Registration Charge’ of First Sincere Motor Rally for road safety has proved this. We are not only conscious in our program but also to the most concerning issue of Nepal like road safety. In big and developed cities the condition of road accident is very critical. The condition of Nepal is worst than that. As Nepal is not suffering major industrial, atomic and sea accident; road accident has become the most painful reality. So that plicgovinda2010we need to be conscious and serious for the reduction of loss of life and property from mismanaged traffic system. At last realizing the above facts, we are launching this site. We believe our these efforts will be milestone in road safety if we enhance your continuous support, cooperation and feedback.
