Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Fund and National Road Safety Council (NRSC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate and facilitate a coherent approach to road safety to accomplish a safe national road network, today.

MVA Chief Corporate Affairs Kapena Tjombonde said “the MoU specifies how the two institutions will work in partnership with the objective of formalising collaborative efforts aimed at providing a unified force to which public and private stakeholders can significantly contribute, to improve the country’s road safety record,” she said.

Under the terms of the MoU, the two parties undertake to engage each other in their quest to establish structures for collaboration to promote improved road safety performance in Namibia through jointly identified and mutually agreed road safety interventions and public education campaigns as per the Namibian chapter of the Decade of Action.

As part of the MoU, the MVA Fund and NRSC will jointly engage relevant State Owned Enterprises, Government Ministries and private institutions to harmonise efforts and in so doing minimise duplication and fragmentation of road safety interventions. Over the years, the MVA Fund and NRSC have worked together and supported each other to achieve their common goal of reducing road crashes.
