Although road crashes are a major concern in all countries in the world, it is even more so in developing and middle-income countries. For example, while the global rate of road traffic death is 18.2 per 100,000 population, in Africa this rate is almost 50% higher (26.6 per 100,000 population) (WHO Status Report on Road Safety, 2018). Much can be gained by building and reinforcing the local capacity to address this high road toll.
The DRSC has been postponed to September 2021
The Delft Road Safety Course for low and middle-income countries (LMIC) will be held in September 2021 – more information is available here.
Because of the COVID-19 situation all actions have been postponed.
Course participants gained knowledge and skills to analyse road safety issues, and respond with effective and efficient solutions. This included developing and implementing road safety strategies adapted to local conditions.
DRSC is an evidence-based and data driven course which applies the Safe System approach.
Places on the course are highly sought after, and a number of scholarships are available to support participants who wish to attend.
DRSC is a cooperation between Delft University of Technology, SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research, Delft Post Graduate Education, CARRS-Q, and Road Safety for All. FIA Foundation is also a supporter of DRSC.
