Say NO to violation on road
in cooperation with National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), 12-16 February 2018
The Ministry of Communications is pleased to announce its first Road Safety Data Analysis Training Course to be conducted at the National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST) Campus in Sector H-12, Islamabad during 12-16th February 2018.
The course aims to support the Government of Pakistan (GoP) in its ambition to develop better road safety data and to establish fully operational National Transport and Road Safety Data Observatories by 2020. Achievement of this ambition is key to improving transport and road safety and realising the associated benefits to the whole country.
An effective Road Safety Data Observatory (see figure 1) which provides high quality data and analysis is an essential tool to develop public policy and legislation, set targets and develop evidence based, results focused strategies and programs. All road safety professionals including government agency professional, academics and researchers contribute data to such observatories. In Pakistan, improved data collection and a Road Safety Data Observatory will play a critical role in supporting the Government of Pakistan (GOP) to:
This course aims to bring together these key professionals from Federal, and Provincial/Territory levels, build their skills to benefit their own agency and improve road safety at a nation-wide level.
The MOC is being supported by NTU International to deliver this course which will be led by Dr Antonino Tripodi, an internationally recognised road crash data analyst and the author of over 25 road safety publications.
All training activities will be directly based on 2013 to 2016 Pakistan road crash data and will be highly interactive, with a focus on practical sessions during which participants will learn the importance of reliable and complete road crash data, how these data should be collected and stored at agency and observatory levels, why data and information are essential to define strategies and interventions, what data are important to be analysed and how to conduct analysis.
By the end of this course, participants will have expertise in road safety definitions used in Pakistan and globally for road crash data, understand how data and information inform strategy and policy setting and new legislation. They will have gained the knowledge and skills required to undertake analysis and present findings in an impactful way to executive managers and the government.
