Duties and Responsibilities

Every year, an estimated 1.3 million people are killed, and around 50 million injured, in road traffic accidents. This makes poor road safety one of the most pressing social, economic, and development issue of our time. Beyond human suffering, road traffic deaths and injuries impose significant economic and financial losses to individuals and to societies, estimated to create a USD 1.85 trillion burden on the global economy each year. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development included road safety in two of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), namely targets 3.6 and 11.2. Despite significant national and international efforts in recent years, the world is still far from achieving these global targets. Moreover, road safety has not been adequately funded at the national, regional or global levels.

In recognition of these challenges, the United Nations Road Safety Fund (UNRSF) was established in April 2018 as a multi-partner trust fund to facilitate concrete action towards achievement of the road safety targets of Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 11.

The Fund’s goal is to leverage the collective knowledge and capability of its participating UN organizations and partners in order to achieve global impact and long-term developmental change in a substantial reduction in road traffic injuries and fatalities, and the economic loss arising therefrom.

On 19 February 2020, the Stockholm Declaration was adopted at the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety and endorsed a new ten-year effort to transform road safety efforts with a target to halve road deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

Another major development in 2020 has been the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a dramatic disruption of lives, livelihoods, communities and businesses worldwide. National lockdowns and restrictions on public transport and movement have significantly affected mobility and the lives of people living in cities and urban spaces. This has also affected the implementation of UNRSF projects at the country-level. In addition, resources are increasingly, and understandably, diverted to COVID-19 response, and a predicted global economic crisis may result in lower levels of donor assistance in general.

September 2020 was an important month for road safety with the new United Nations General Assembly Resolution A/RES/74/299 declaring a new Decade of Action for Road safety (2021-2030). The resolution also invites countries to invest in road safety, including by supporting the UNRSF. The Global Action Plan for Road Safety has been launched in October 2021.

In 2021, the UNRSF celebrated its 3rd birthday and launched the UNRSF results brochure, a new format of the UNRSF newsletter, a new website including a platform for individual donations and several new social media profiles, launched 10 new projects.

In November 2021, The UNRSF has launched a new campaign "#moments2live4" which encourages everyday road users to share those simple moments that matter much more than moments wasted on poor road safety behaviour. The objective of the global social media campaign "Moments2live4" is to raise awareness on the needs of global, national, corporate and individual investments for road safety and ultimately help low-and middle-income countries to get financing for road safety. From December 2021 to June 2022, during the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety (2021-2030), the campaign will actively engage everyday road users to share campaign messages and post a photo and/or 24 second video of the moments in life that inspire them to believe in the importance of safe roads everywhere. The campaign will close with High Level Meeting for Road Safety to beheld on the 30 June- 1st July 2022. The UNRSF will participate to the preparatory meeting of his event to be held at the UN Headquarters in NYC on the 3rd December 2021.

The 3rd December 2021 also marked the launch of the UNRSF 1st replenishment cycle, which seeks to raise at least $40 million dollars for the 2022-2025 period with a target of supporting at least 60 additional countries, more than its current 30 countries, by the end of 2025

Drawing from the Fund’s Global Framework Plan of Action for Road Safety, Terms of Reference, Fundraising Strategy and Policy, Branding Identity and Messaging Framework, and other founding documents, there is a continued need to develop further the Fund’s communications and advocacy in order to support the positioning of its work.

The development of communications activities, particularly compelling visual and graphic designs for print and web media, is essential to raise the visibility and success of the Fund.

The objective of the assignment is to support the effective and timely implementation of the Fund’s Communications Plan insofar as visual creation and presentations are concerned. The Visual Communications Officer will prepare and finalize the design of the UNRSF annual report, newsletters, book on road safety, social media and website publications, #moments2live4 communication packages, videos editing in particular in the context of the campaign #moments2live4, fundraising materials, project communication packages and special communications projects related to the UNRSF anniversary, UN Global Days, the UNRSF Pledging Conference and others.

The Visual Communications Individual Contractor will perform the following tasks:

Creation of the Fund’s audio-visual and print products:

· Creation of visuals and material for UNRSF activities, newsletters, flyers, brochures, videos including for the web and social media

· Design of the UNRSF book

· Creation of UNRSF project sheets and other materials
