Road safety is a global concern, as more than 1.35 million people are killed on roads each year. As part of its road safety program, WRI has developed tactical urbanism interventions that seek to influence the public policy of cities to generate permanent solutions that improve the safety conditions for residents.
This webinar will present three cases, one in India and two in Brazil, in which tactical urbanism interventions have been a tool that has triggered a clear improvement in public space and in pedestrian safety.

With funding from the Global Environment Facility, the Global Platform for Sustainable Cities’ Resource Team presents a webinar series examining sustainable and integrated urban development through a range of topics. The Resource Team, a consortium made up of WRI, C40 and ICLEI, is working in partnership with the World Bank in support of their Global Platform for Sustainable Cities. The GPSC program brings together participating cities and a wide range of entities that are working on urban sustainability issues to create a shared platform for global knowledge and an evidence-based, integrated approach to realize very worthwhile outcomes.
