On 20 November 2009 more than 70 Ministers of Transport, Health and Interior and other senior government officials from 150 countries adopted the "Moscow Declaration" at the close of the First Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety. This historic document invites the UN General Assembly to declare a Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. It also encourages further implementation of the recommendations of the World report on road traffic injury prevention; calls for particular efforts to address the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and users of public transport; promotes harmonization of road safety and vehicle safety regulations and good practices; recommends strengthening road safety legislation and enforcement; supports enhancing emergency trauma care systems; and requests additional funding from the international development community, especially for low-income and middle-income countries.
