Save Live Africa


 

"The greatest safety gain in road safety can be achieved in Africa. Many lives on the African roads must and can be saved. SAVELIVE Africa will contribute to this objective"

The Save Live Initiative is carried out under the umbrella of the West African Road Safety Organisation (WARSO) of which the road safety authority of Mali holds the Presidency, and the Federal Road safety Corps of Nigeria the Secretariat.

The aim of Save Live is to build and implement a robust crash data collection system in West-African countries. The Initiative was officially launched following the unanimous adoption of Resolution 2.11 by the WARSO Member States during the WARSO annual Assembly in Dakar the 23-26th of July 2018

The first phase of this initiative is financially supported by the BPF Luxembourg. The WARSO Secretariat will be supported in its day-to-day management by LuxMobility from Luxembourg (www.luxmobility.eu). For the workshops and training programs in the French speaking countries Save Live collaborates with the “Alliance Francophone pour la Sécurité Routière” (AFSR). 

 

From data to knowledge

Working with modern road safety data collection and analyse systems allow to translate data into knowledge. Save Live includes a three year monitoring, training and assistance to ensure sustainability. A helpdesk will give support and provide road safety audits. This allows each African country to realise its road safety objectives.

Senegal, a first Ambassador

Following the signing of the Save Live agreement between Senegal and Luxembourg on the 31st of January 2018 under the chairmanship of Minister Abdoulaye Daouda Diallo of Senegal and Minister Romain Schneider of Luxembourg, Senegal acts as the official first Save Live Ambassador. 

Save Live supports Senegal in its efforts to reach the set objective of a 35% decrease of the number of victims of road accidents and improve post-crash response. The Senegal implementation is done in close cooperation with VIA from the Netherlands (www.via.nl), provider of a software package for the data collection system.
