Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The International Road Federation is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that promotes the development and maintenance of roads, with a focus on safety and sustainability. The organization has two key functions, providing expertise on road issues to governments and financial institutions and serving as a network for its members. The members of the IRF range from national governments to construction firms and environmental groups and are located across six continents. The organization is funded primarily through member fees. The IRF has chapters in Geneva, Switzerland, Washington D.C, USA and New Delhi, India with the Geneva chapter functioning as a headquarters. The IRF is perhaps best known as the publisher of World Road Statistics, the authoritative collection of statistics used by the World Bank. WRS was first published in 1964. World Road Statistics contains detailed country profiles and sections on road networks, traffic, multimodal traffic comparisons, vehicles, road accidents, production, imports, first registrations and exports, road expenditures and energy. The World Bank uses WRS in publishing its own World Development Indicators.show more
