An additional US $ 2 billion is needed to halve road accidents in Sri Lanka

An additional US $ 2 billion is needed to halve road accidents in Sri Lanka

“It is estimated that Sri Lanka will require an additional investment of almost US $ 2 billion over the coming decade, if it is to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 3.6 target of a 50 percent reduction in national road crash fatalities,” the World Bank said.

 


Meanwhile, the World Bank estimates that road crash fatalities and injuries could cost countries like Sri Lanka between 3-5 percent of GDP annually.
