Key findings of the Roads for Polder Water Management in Bangladesh

This past November, two validation workshops took place in Bangladesh to present, discuss and validate the key findings of Roads to the Rescue project. The first workshop, 9th of November in Khulna, local representatives (BWDB, UP, WMA, farmers and teachers) highlighted as main issues in Polder 32 (Dacope Upazila): more gated culverts are needed and include the flood shelter function in the embankment design. Second workshop, 15th of November in Khajuriya (Barisal District), local representatives (LGED, UP and WMA) discussed as main issues of a small LGED polder: the poor state of embankments and roads, insufficient budget and human capacity, insufficient culverts and sluices. Therefore, common solutions for both polders are: increase number and capacity of water crossing structures, improve the design of (road) embankments, build new embankments and canal dredging.

These are the two main presentations:

Resilient roads and resilient road water environments in Tajikistan – Workshop presentations

The Republic of Tajikistan is the mos vulnerable country to climate change. A combination of floods, landslides, mudslides and droughts are threatening the country’s infrastructure and food security. Despite having plenty of surface water resources, some parts of the country experience water scarcity during the dry season. The “Roads for Water” team assessed the challenges and opportunities to combine road and water management in Tajikistan and have more resilient roads and road water environments. These are the workshop presentations, both in English and Russian:

Uncovering the Opportunities for Improving Road Water Management for Resilience in Mahottari Distict, Nepal

This report assesses the scope for making use of roads for climate resilience and improved water management in Nepal. The study is part of the Roads for Water Initiative. The report presents an overview of problems currently caused by a mismatch between road construction and water management and gives recommendations on how to use roads to increase climate resilience. Read the report here.

Assessment Report: Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Water Management in the Design and Construction of Roads

This report assesses the scope for making use of roads for building climate resilience and improved water management in Mozambique. With 30,121 kilometres of roads in Mozambique the more systematic integration of road maintenance/ improvement and water management presents an important opportunity to increase climate resilience.

Road Crossings for Water Harvesting in Dry Rivers: Non-Vented Drifts as Sand Dams

This Practical Note discusses the siting, the design and the construction of road crossings in dry
riverbeds to harvest and retain flood water. With extensive road construction programs ongoing in
most part of the world and 60% of new roads to be added from 2010 to 2025 globally, the
opportunities to combine road development with water management are substantial. Within this the
use of road drifts – in particular the use of nonvented drifts functioning as sand dams in semiarid
and arid areas – is an important and in most countries underutilized opportunity to harvest flood
water. Read the note here.
