Course description

Road Safety in the Caribbean Region: Institutions and Data Management

“I am a Lieutenant Colonel in passive service of the Ecuadorian Transit Commission and a teacher at Condues (Training School for Professional Drivers) in Guayaquil, and this course allowed me to understand the reality of statistics and the problems at the regional level in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the actions and projections to achieve a reduction in traffic crashes in my country and in the others around the region."

Can you imagine being able to contrast your opinions and experiences with people like Lieutenant Colonel Enrique from Ecuador or other practicing public managers and representatives of Civil Society organizations from all over the region? In this course, you will have that opportunity and also access to videos of international specialists from various organizations (IDB, PAHO / WHO, WRI, LatinNCAP, among others), readings, best practices in the Caribbean region, recommendations, practical activities, and discussion forums.

As traffic crashes are one of the main causes of death in Latin America and the Caribbean, their consequences are immediate and generate a great social and economic burden.

Be a part of the change now, and let's make safe mobility a reality!
