Climate Resilient Rural Infrastructure


David Salter
ADB

Presentation!
1. Context" 2. Climate change impacts" 3. Tools"

11/13/12

Context!
1. Low volume rural roads (LVRR)" 2. Local resource based approaches"

LVRR!
Represent largest proportion of road network." Support agriculture and rural productivity;" Poverty;" High variability in road environment and use;" Often in poor condition;" Constrained by:" Financial resources; management priority; and, technical knowledge and practices."

LVRR!

Climate Change (CC) - LVRR!


Intensify existing stresses;" Water:" Surface movement, raindrop, and table elevation;" Cross drainage, erosion, slope stability, embankment design, surfaces and pavements, and subsurface strength."

CC - LVRR!
Financial resources will continue to be constrained." Will require improved management." Need to look at cost effective approaches." Local resources need to be optimally mobilized."

Local Resource Approaches! Labour" Materials" Enterprises" Communities and social structures"

Tools!
ADB Transport Community of Practice" Rural Access and Transport Advisory Team" Supporting the development of:" a. Small Structures for Rural Roads;" b. Slope Engineering for Mountain Roads;" c. Handbook of Intermediate Equipment for Road Works in Emerging Economies; and" d. International Low Cost Road Surfacing and Pavement Guideline."

Small Structures for Rural Roads!


Volumes:! 1. Planning & Initial Design! 2. Detailed Design, Construction & Maintenance! 3: Design Drawing & BoQ! 4: Design Drawings (A3)!
