There has been high activity in Africa. After the African launch in Côte d’Ivoire in April 2018, there were launches in Nigeria, Ghana and Zambia. The Côte d’Ivoire and Zambia are particularly active with 446 supporters combined. Côte d’Ivoire has particularly high interest from trainers.

In recent months, there has also been an increase interest from Latin American countries. The Latin American launch took place in September 2018, and since December there have been 30-40 newcomers to the Vision Zero campaign every month.

Vision Zero started in Asia, with the global launch in Singapore followed by the regional launch in Thailand. Asia and the Pacific is today the second biggest Vision Zero region with 821 partners, companies and trainers.
