Pillar 4 Call for Case Studies

The Pillar 4 Alliance working group has identified an opportunity/need to promote best practice from and for NGOs that demonstrates how to address road user behavior effectively. NGOs are invited to submit details about their projects/interventions for consideration as best practice case studies which will be used to present to the UNRSC and may form a publication at a later date.

The purpose of gathering this information is:

  • To present Alliance NGO road safety best practices to the UNRSC and other road safety stakeholders, demonstrating NGOs’ contribution to the Decade of Action/SDGs.
  • To provide replicable ideas and best practices that can be used by other NGOs and road safety stakeholders to inform their own work.

 

What are Alliance Pillar Working Groups?

In April 2017, the Alliance announced pillar working groups around the five pillars of the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 in order to enable member NGOs to feed into the UNRSC agenda. Pillar 4 focuses on road user behavior.

How can I submit a case study for consideration?

Deadline for submission of case studies is Monday 10 September 2018. Remember to consider the best practice criteria below. You can submit your case study by clicking HERE or on the button below.

What counts as best practice?

We have identified characteristics of road safety interventions that would demonstrate that they represented best practices. We have established this criteria to assess interventions in a transparent, fair, and objective way. The criteria can be found below.

Evaluation criteria

Operationalization

Relevance  

  • Political/strategic context of the practice or intervention needs to be clearly explained and considered.
  • Be in line with WHO global road safety performance targets
  • Be priority public health area or a strategy at Local/Regional level or National level

Intervention characteristics

  • Existence of a situation analysis (e.g. problem analysis, needs assessment – before the practice has been started
  • Established objectives
  • A consistent methodology  

Evidence  based

  • Scientific approach
  • Use of evidence (from literature or anecdotal evidence)
  • Credible analysis and dissemination of the evidence

Ethical aspects

  • The relevant dimensions of equity are adequately and actively considered throughout the process of implementing the practice (e.g. age, gender, socioeconomic status, rural-urban area, vulnerable groups)

Effectiveness and efficiency of the intervention

  • The degree to which the intervention was successful in producing a desired result in an optimal way.
  • The extent to which the objectives of quantity, quality and time have been met under real conditions at the lowest possible cost.

Equity

  • The relevant dimensions of equity are adequately and actively considered throughout the process of implementing the practice (e.g. age, gender, socioeconomic status, rural-urban area, vulnerable groups)

Transferability

  • Extent the implementation results are systematized and documented, making it possible to transfer it to other contexts/settings/countries or to scale it up to a broader target population/geographic context.

Sustainability

  • Ability to be maintained in the long-term with the available resources
  • Adapting to social, economic and environmental requirements of the context

Participation of stakeholders

  • The inclusion of stakeholders
  • Foster collaboration among the different sectors involved.

Multi-sectoral collaboration

  • Foster collaboration among the different sectors involved

What will you do with the case studies?

The case studies will be reviewed against the criteria and the strongest cases identified to be presented to the UNRSC. Selected case studies may be published or used in some other way to give practitioners ideas for effective interventions and demonstrate the valuable role of NGOs.
