The Fund's goal is to leverage the collective knowledge and capability of the UN system and all Fund stakeholders to achieve global impact and long-term developmental change through a substantial reduction in road traffic injuries and fatalities, and the economic loss arising therefrom.

Comprised of mainly UN regional commissions and specialized UN agencies, the UNRSF has a unique capacity to support "upstream" regional harmonization of national or municipal road safety systems. The Fund has conducted five calls for proposals to-date, culminating in the approval of funding to 44 projects in 88 countries.
