Vanuatu Resilient Roads Manual - Succinct Practical Guide

This is a summary of the Vanuatu Resilient Roads Manual which was produced to provide guidelines for the development and promotion of appropriate methods of road engineering for the best possible access to communities at minimum cost. It was developed as a 'user friendly version' that can be used for training and ongoing capacity building of climate resilient considerations for road design.

This summary was developed under the Climate Resilient Road Standards (CRRS) Project. The CRRS was funded directly by a grant from the Australian Government (under the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme) to the Government of Vanuatu. It commenced in December 2013 and was completed in March 2015.
