Brochure: Road Development to Support Water Management and Flood Resilience
With 40,000 kilometres of embankment roads, polder roads and footpaths and a population of 30 Million in coastal polders of Bangladesh – roads provide a large opportunity to serve water management and flood resilience. “Roads to the Rescue” focuses on strengthening the practicality of using roads for water management within polders and making roads instruments for flood protection. Within the polders, rural transport structures such as roads, bridges, and culverts strongly influence water flow, distribution, and water levels. These structures can contribute to better management of flood inundation, can avoid flood drainage congestion, provide better embankments and provide flood and post flood shelters.
