Introduction to the 24th Conference on Safe Community
The 24th International Conference on Safe Communities (ICSC-24)"
Main Theme: "Countdown to Decade of Action for Road Safety: where are we now? 2011-2020"
It has been more than 40 years that "The International Conference on Safe Communities" is leaded by "The International Safe Community Certifying Center" and hosted by a member country once in every 2 years.
We are pleased to announce that the international Conference on Safe Communities, the 24th plenary in the successful series, will be held in Tabriz, Iran, during August 22-25 2019.
Tabriz International Safe Community Support Center, as the sole certified member and representative of Iran in the International Network of Safe Community Support Centers organizes the 24th International Conference on Safe Communities, jointly with relevant national and international authorities.
One of key areas deemed in safe Communities is traffic injury prevention and its promotion. Traffic injuries account for a main percentage of injuries and accidents which vary between 50-64% in difference countries like Iran. Traffic injuries have been considered crucial problems and the economic burden in countries, so the goal of stabilizing and reducing the forecast level of road traffic deaths was introduced. Besides, the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011–2020 was officially proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in March 2010. It is estimated that 5 million lives could be saved on the world’s roads during the decade. The goal is deemed to reach around the world. The upcoming International Conference will provide a precious opportunity for safe community related researchers to foster exchanges between countries on their global distance and the goal, the countries road traffic level, experiments and experiences to pave the path for having safe communities.
