Supporting safer mobility

DRSC supports the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Plan of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50% by 2030. We focus our work on low and middle income countries, which account for more than 90% of all road traffic deaths.

Not only do high road casualty rates cause substantial pain and grief for individuals, families, and communities, but they also have significant social, economic and environmental costs. Building safe and sustainable transport systems has been proven to improve economic development, access to education, gender equality, health and wellbeing, as well as mitigating the impacts of climate change.

DRSC Alumni Testimonials

Many of our alumni have gone on to use the knowledge and experiences they gained through DRSC to develop their careers and influence road safety policy making in their home countries.

Our Story

DRSC started as a collaboration between Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), SWOV (the Netherlands institute for traffic safety scientific research), the Post Academic Education Foundation, and the Road Safety for All Foundation.

With support from the FIA Foundation and Sensys Gatso, DRSC organised it’s first annual road safety course. 


With support of the World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility, DRSC began organising annual tailor-made training courses in Brazil, Cambodia, and Ghana.


The FIA Foundation became DRSC’s core donor, supporting the annual course for road safety professionals from low and middle income countries.


DRSC is officially registered as a ‘Stichting’ according to Dutch Law, becoming a Netherlands-based NGO.

2020 onwards

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, DRSC began offering more online learning. Today, in addition to our core course, DRSC offers continuous learning and capacity development opportunities for our alumni through online webinars and discussion forums.
