Mainstreaming disaster risk management to sustain local roads infrastructure: Risk assessment

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

The 2017-2022 Philippine development plan recognizes that road infrastructure is a key point of convergence with productive sectors, but the quality remains inadequate. The KALSADA-conditional matching grant to provinces (CMGP) program was developed by the national government to help local government units (LGUs) improve the quality of provincial roads, which is significantly below that of national and city roads. For sustainability, climate resilience considerations need to be better factored into local roads (provincial, city, municipal, and barangay roads) planning and design, especially in the Philippine setting. For local roads, LGUs typically apply the adopted standards of the national roads’ agency, however how it is applied is largely up to the LGUs, as there is no supervision from national roads agency. Thus, there is a need to assess how road design standards relevant to climate resilience are actually interpreted and applied by LGUs in practice. This project aims to specifically increase the capacity of LGUs in dealing with climate and other risks affecting local roads and enhance coordination with the national roads agency towards improving the resilience of local roads. This report discusses the risk assessment and the prioritization of interventions for the provincial road network of Nueva Ecija. The project is focused on the local road network in the province of Nueva Ecija. More specifically, the project is focused on the provincial roads and in this report the results of the risk assessment of the provincial roads is presented.
