The World Health Organisation (WHO) Legal Development Programme (LDP) on Road Safety and Lawxy have announced Phase II of the project. Applications are invited for the LDP which will be conducted from June to December 2018.
Although road traffic injuries have been a leading cause of mortality for many years, most traffic crashes are both predictable and preventable. Lawxy aims to implement some of these proven measures in India. Rolling out these interventions in India will offer huge potential to mitigate future damage and save lives.
About the LDP Project: To combat the ever-growing menace of traffic accidents, WHO has launched LDP in India in 2017. Lawxy implemented it last year and is continuing to partner with WHO in 2018. The focus of this project is to change how traffic safety is viewed by all stakeholders (the government, the media, the courts and by the common man).
Applicants will be trained by leading WHO officials, government officials, judges, senior advocates, journalists and public policy professionals.
The application form can be accessed here.
Deadline for completing the application: 15th June 2018
Shortlisted applicants will be called for a telephonic interview. Further, shortlisted candidates would be provided some material according to their professional background and would then have to complete an online test.
