Description: 

Roads typically cause erosion, flooding, and water logging, whereas water is the prime cause of damage to roads. As such, roads and water are often considered as enemies; albeit if remedied, both could be friends. Roads can become instruments for water management and climate resilience. MetaMeta’s Frank van Steenbergen discussed the Green Roads Initiative, presenting techniques and examples from different countries.
