Meeting with the Secretary-General of IFRC

On 3 April 2020, the Special Envoy virtually met with Mr. Jagan Chapagain, the Secretary-General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to share about his mandate, activities and the road safety global figures.

Welcoming the new IFRC Secretary-General to his role, the Special Envoy outlined the urgency to address this global emergency. He appreciated the IFRC as an important partner given their dedication to the cause through the past decade and with the hosting of the Global Road Safety Partnership. They discussed in-country joint efforts in 2021, including potential missions to the most affected countries.
