SDG 3: Road traffic accidents

Seeks to ensure health and well-being for all, at every stage of life. The Goal addresses all major health priorities, including reproductive, maternal and child health; communicable, non-communicable and environmental diseases; universal health coverage; and access for all to safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and vaccines. It also calls for more research and development, increased health financing, and strengthened capacity of all countries in health risk reduction and management.

Around 1.25 million people died from road traffic injuries in 2013. Halving the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents by 2020 is an ambitious goal given the dramatic increase in the number of vehicles, which nearly doubled between 2000 and 2013.

SDG 9: Innovation & technology
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation New and existing industries must pursue sustainable paths, including through innovation and upgraded technology.

SDG 11: Sustainable transport systems
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. By 2030, provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons.

SDG 17: Partnerships
Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. The SDGs will mean little without the means to implement them. Finance, technology, capacities, partnerships and data are among the primary tools. Success also depends on a stable global economy and the ability of each country to make policy choices aimed at achieving all of the goals.
Kenya Government in its development plan to respond to road safety through National Transport and Safety Authority working closely with Vision 2030 Delivery Secretariat has embraced United Nation Development Programme Sustainable Development Goals 3, 9, 11 and 17.
