Maintaining and restoring connectivity between source populations is essential for the long term viability of wide-ranging species, many of which occur in landscapes that are under pressure to meet increasing infrastructure needs. Identifying barriers in corridors can help inform conservation and infrastructure development agencies so that development objectives can be achieved without compromising conservation goals.

East African governments will be forced to dig deeper into their pockets to repair infrastructure damaged by the heavy rains that have gone on for close to three months now, with a trail of destruc

African economies have been resilient to negative shocks, yet poor infrastructure remains a key obstacle to the continent’s inclusive growth, according to the 2018 edition of the African Economic O

Roadway design aims to maximize functionality, safety, and longevity. The materials used for construction, however, are often selected on the assumption of a stationary climate. Anthropogenic climate change may therefore result in rapid infrastructure failure and, consequently, increased maintenance costs, particularly for paved roads where temperature is a key determinant for material selection.

In the wake of the 3/11 disasters and the powerful earthquakes in Kyushu in April, a new Cabinet Office survey has highlighted concerns about the state of Japan’s roads.

Japan is well-equipped to cope with natural hazards but faces a far greater risk from disasters than other developed nations due to its high exposure to earthquakes and floods, a U.N.

The cost of natural disasters in Australia is 50% more than previously estimated– $9bn in 2015 – and is set to increase to $33bn by 2050 even ignoring the effect of climate change, according to two

Rapidly increasing urbanisation in India has brought much needed focus on the urban development policies in India. The Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission was the first programme to provide substantial funds for urban local bodies to improve their infrastructure and bring in better governance systems. This article tries to look at the mission from a new public management perspective. The performance of ULBs in project implementation shows delinking from the reforms agenda of the mission.

More extreme droughts, floods and wildfires — these are just some of the impacts of climate change that won't just occur in the distant future to our great-great grandchildren, but are happening no
