Community-based bio-engineering for eco-safe roadsides in Nepal

International Union for Conservation of Nature

- N/A

This manual provides guidance to communities and local government agencies on the occurrence, assessment and mitigation of road construction-induced landslides and erosion. By better understanding the interaction between human activity and natural phenomena we are better able to find solutions and increase our coping capacities to face threats. In Nepal, the number of rural roads has quadrupled over the past two decades as many communities are prioritizing access to markets, health care and education. We know that haphazard rural road construction in Nepal is one of the leading causes of slope instabilities and severe erosion, leading to the destruction of agricultural land, loss of lives and property.
