How to make roads work for resilience in Nepal?
Nepal is a challenging country for road design and construction: the low-lying plains that are prone to flooding and inundation, hilly areas with a lot of irrigation potential, and the mountains with very steep slopes.
We presented and discussed the challenges and opportunities at the Department of Roads. There is a lot of potential to turn roads into an asset for water management. The engineers indicated that the policy-aspect is very important, it needs to be included in decision-making.
