From risk assessment to road safety with the Yemen Red Crescent Society

In 2001, the Yemen Red Crescent Society (YRCS) conducted a vulnerability and capacity assessment (VCA) study in Hajjah and Hodeidah governorates. The study showed that traffic accidents are a major hazard and the YRCS decided to initiate a pilot road safety project in the two governorates. The YRCS branches in Hajjah and Hodeidah would carry out the project, which aimed to: reduce the number of the traffic accidents; increase the level of the local communities’ awareness of the hazard; change the behaviour of students towards traffic; and decrease the number of casualties among students. This resource presents this project. Published in 2004.
