The Climate Adaptation Platform (CAP) would like to invite you to the webinar, “Climate Resilient Sustainable Road Pavement Surfacings” (CRISPS) on 10th of December 2020 – 9:00 to 10:00 AM CET.
CAP Team Leader, Dr. Theuns Henning of the University of Auckland is one of the webinar’s main speakers.
Climate change effects like hotter seasons, extreme rainfall, and sea-level rise affect road performance, especially in Low-Income Countries (LICs), leading to rapid road deterioration and higher costs that can set back a country’s economic gains.
The CRISPS multi-disciplinary research project, which will operate over 18 months seeks to address this. Leading the project is the University of Birmingham (UoB) and with the collaboration of the University of Auckland (UoA), the Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), and the International Road Federation (IRF).
The research project aims to demonstrate the technical and economic suitability of three global best-practice road surfacing technologies for the range of traffic and environmental conditions of high volume roads that typically currently occur in LICs and those that are predicted to occur in the future.
