16 November 2021, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania – In an effort to make Tanzanian roads safer for all users, UNITAR Road Safety Global Training Initiative teamed up with Tanzania’s Traffic Police, AB InBev, and Tanzania’s Brewery Limited (TBL) to deliver a virtual 3-day workshop in November 2021. The workshop aimed to strengthen Tanzania’s national capacity for developing local strategies to improve existing road infrastructure, particularly for the most vulnerable road users. Over the course of the workshop, 15 police officers were introduced to UNITAR’s Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit and pilot projects from cities in Brazil and India.
The workshop allowed participants to explore the Toolkit in greater detail, emphasizing the importance of improving the road infrastructure, the value of law enforcement, and the need for partnerships with a collaborative and multi-stakeholder approach to road safety. All road users are responsible for making roads safer, and this workshop provided the necessary methodology and tools for participants to accomplish this.
On the workshop’s final day, UNITAR launched the Management Practices for Safer Roads Toolkit Mobile App in Swahili, specifically developed for using Tanzania’s Traffic Police. To access the Mobile App in Swahili, download it from Google Play or the App Store and select your preferred language in the “Preferences” section.
