To promote road safety in the region, CAREC is holding a series of national workshops on road safety engineering. The 4-day technical training program is designed to assist road agencies in CAREC countries in providing safer roads.

The workshop focuses on Pillar 2 (Safer Roads) of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. It follows the recently published CAREC Road Safety Engineering Manuals (Road Safety Audit, Safer Road Works, and Roadside Hazard Management).
