Resilient transport infrastructure are a key driver of societal resilience at both national and local levels. Adaptation of existing road networks at Bangladesh can greatly reduce the impacts of extreme events such as major floods and droughts to local communities. Through a baseline case-study, assuming planned road interventions, this session will dive deeper and engage participants in identifying opportunities from different perspectives and levels. As a result, opportunities and measures, combining the benefits of water-related risk management and transport infrastructures, will be identified.
