Subcomponent 2.2 of the program will finance the design of a national Road Safety Action Plan (RSAP) and associated studies, including policy and regulatory recommendations for improved safety systems for Georgetown and the rest of Guyana, especially targeted to address common causes of accidents affecting vulnerable groups. More specifically, the RSAP will diagnose and analyse the overall situation, identify key risks, opportunities and entry points for improvements, and prepare an action plan of activities and investments to be financed and implemented to reduce the number of road casualties and fatalities over time.


The RSAP will also include specific recommendations that can be incorporated in the design of the projects, drafting of policies and regulations for traffic, parking and road-sharing, recommendations for improved infrastructure and signalling and recommendations for institutional strengthening.
The estimated implementation period of the Consultancy is 6 months.
