Webinar Roads for Water

In this webinar Ian Neal (Excellent Development) and Frank van Steenbergen (MetaMeta) present several examples that demonstrate how roads can be designed in ways that slow down runoff, minimize erosion and facilitate groundwater recharge. Many instances of water harvesting structures  are constructed in ways that improve access for rural communities, protect existing roads and even add to the roads network.
