Upgrading Apia’s main road, a path to climate-proofing Samoa’s future

19 Jan 2017, WB

More than 50% of West Coast Road, Apia’s main roadway, sits less than three meters (9.8 feet) above sea level and just a few meters from the shoreline, making it highly vulnerable to damage and deterioration. Efforts are ongoing to increase the climate resilience of the road network.
