Enhancing the climate resilience of Africa’s Infrastructure: the roads and bridges sector

This report examines the implications of climate change for Africa’s road connectivity, and practical steps that can be taken now to minimize the associated risks. The goal of this study is first to quantify the cost of climate change to the African roads sector, and second to assist decision makers in identifying the most cost-effective adaptation approach. This study provides a basis for making recommendations to regional or sub-regional organizations, road sector ministries and agencies at the country level, along with ministries of finances and planning; and international development partners.
