The Legal Development Program (LDP) held the first strategic meeting of 2018 on 21 March at the I Residence Hotel in Bangkok. At the meeting, LDP members and stakeholders discussed the latest information on road safety strategies, policy and implementation gaps, and opportunities for improvement. Participants also prepared a work plan to align with the national government’s long-term goals.
Guest speakers included World Health Organization Technical Officer Dr. Liviu Vedrasco, Dr. Thanapong Jinawong, chief of the Road Safety Policy Foundation, and Dr. Phathai Singkham, a representative of the Bureau of Non-Communicable Diseases at the Department of Disease Control.
The Legal Development Program, which is led globally by the World Health Organization and the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety, aims to build the capacities of legal, civil society, and media professionals to strengthen road safety legislation and enforcement. We coordinate LDP activities in Thailand.
