50 engineers from various Ghanaian agencies took part in a two-day training program on designing climate-resilient road networks.
Action is needed to diagnose systemic weaknesses and adapt transport systems to withstand expected climate impacts such as changes in rainfall, flooding, and sea-level rise as well as extreme weather events. This requires a better understanding of existing vulnerability assessment tools, cost-effective engineering measures and technologies all designed to ensure robustness, redundancy and resilience are designed into road networks.
This 2nd IRF Asia Regional Congress will address the specific needs of the region by bringing together industry leaders, experts and decision-makers. The region has a rapidly expanding road infrastructure and the resources to invest in the new and improved technology.
