The EU has launched a new Twinning project to assist Georgia in improving its policy-making capacity in the field of road safety at the institutional level. The initiative will also improve the quality of the crash data collection and analysis methods.
The project, ‘Support in Establishment of Comprehensive Road Safety Database and Further Improvement of Road Safety Management in Georgia’, has a budget of € 1.3 million and will last for two years.
“Every year, unfortunately, too many people in Georgia die or are injured due to traffic accidents. Based on EU experience, there are clear opportunities to improve the situation and reduce the number of road injuries. Combined with EU support for the construction of safer roads in Georgia, this twinning implemented by Polish and Lithuanian partners will permit to ensure better and safer road conditions for all in Georgia,” said Alexandre Darras from the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia.
The Twinning project will enhance the electronic road safety databases through the capacity building of the relevant personnel involved in road safety data management. It will also assist in establishing the National Trauma Registry and an effective data management system of related national agencies.
