Problem Statement:

April 2009 Introduction to the Global Youth NGO for Road Safety 10 Problem Statement Road Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death among young people, aged 15-24 years old. Every year, road traffic crashes kill more than 400.000 young people and injure millions more.

Problem Statement:

April 2009 Introduction to the Global Youth NGO for Road Safety 11 Problem Statement In order to change this situation, young people face several challenges: A lack of awareness and recognition in the world of the vulnerable position of young people in traffic. A lack of global coordination and collaboration among youth and youth-led NGO's and their road safety initiatives. Youth road safety initiatives remain small-scaled and scattered. A lack of one strong voice to advocate on the behalf of youth and road safety. A lack of resources for youth road safety programmes. A lack of a next generation of leaders who are passionate about road safety and involved in decision making within the road safety field. A lack of capacity building . Road safety knowledge and best practices from youth initiatives are not shared in a broader network. Besides this, programmes targeting youth and road safety are commonly not evidence-based.

Beliefs and values:
