About STTS

What is STTS

Sustainable Transport and Traffic Solutions (STTS) is a not-for-profit charity initiative contributing to deliver sustainable transport and traffic solutions in South Asian Region. The Group is established by a group of people of Nepalese origin working overseas and friends of Nepal. Its current focus is on how to reduce unabated road deaths in Nepal and how to save innocent lives of poor under privileged members of both rural and urban communities.

STTS is incorporated in the State of Queensland in 2015 as per the Company Act of Australia. It has just begun its charity works in Nepal. The long term goal is to focus its activities in developing countries where over 90% of total road fatalities occur.

Over the time, The STTS aims to broaden its activities in the delivery of total transport and traffic solutions for developing countries, which are environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, economically viable and which supports good governance.

Our Strength

Our strength lies on our diverse team members who are ready to contribute to developing sustainable transport and traffic solutions most suitable and easily adaptable to the context of developing countries.

We are a team of people spread around the world having desire to contribute something to the community to which we belong. Having developed expertise in varied sectors (mainly in traffic, transport and allied fields) nationally and internationally, we know the problems, peoples and places on both sides of the world and we are able to see clearly prospects for solutions.

We are aware that what works in developed countries might not work in developing countries of the region. Also, what is required in developing countries may not be available in developed countries. But when we blend the basic principles and policies required for solutions available overseas with the real needs and environment of developing countries, the inefficiencies in reinventing an entirely new wheel for developing potential solutions for problems dominating the region can be significantly reduced. One of the potential problems, which has been well recognised nationally and globally, is how to reduce the burden of road crashes on public health and resulting negative impacts on regional economy. This is where our primary focus is on at present.
