IFP is accredited as a non-profit NGO at the United Nations. We want to send persons competent and committed to pedestrian matters to international meetings, conferences and organisations active in our themes.

Permanent delegates

At present there are three IFP-delegates:

Michelle Ernst is representing IFP at the headquarters in New York.
Christian M. Thomas (Secretary) is representing IFP in the Working Party on road safety (WP1) of the UN-ECE in Geneva. The WP1 meets twice or three times a year for 3 to 4 days.
Dieter Schwab is representing IFP at the UN in Vienna.

Delegates for the other UN (regional) organisations should be appointed in order to build a world-wide network for the promotion of road safety for pedestrians.

Members and member organisations wishing to act as delegates of IFP in international organisations, please report to the secretariat, and your intention will be considered.
