The overall SaferAfrica concept is depicted as a pyramid.
The top of the pyramid represents road safety and traffic management actions. The other two layers represent the Dialogue Platform: the upper level is an high decision-making level, while the lower one constitutes a technical/operative level articulated into working groups on specific road safety and traffic management themes; these two levels are closely interconnected to foster an appropriate match between African road safety policy evolution, application, knowledge enhancement and institutional delivery capacity.
The base of the pyramid consists of four pillars defined according to the priorities highlighted by the Africa Road Safety Action Plan mid-term review :
- Road safety knowledge and data (with the specific objective of setting up the African Road Safety Observatory)
- Road safety and traffic management capacity reviews
- Capacity building and training
- Sharing of good practices.
