The paper presents the results of the road safety data analysis, collected within the research project “SaferAfrica – Innovating dialogue and problems appraisal for a safer Africa”, aiming to support policy makers and stakeholders with evidence on critical risk factors, related actions and good practices drawn from high quality data and knowledge. The project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. A data organisation and analysis system was developed for the data gathered in order to produce indicators and define critical areas and challenges per assessed topic and region of Africa. The analysis of the data, collected either from international databases or via questionnaires in Africa, delivered certain thematic topics, in the form of fact sheets, for identifying priority areas for road safety actions and interventions. The paper outlines, per fact sheet, the basic results of the road safety data analysis.
