The first part is dedicated to the different acoustic and non-acoustic standards and guidelines used to insure performance. The second focuses on the types of barriers, looking at the aesthetic appeal, shapes and materials with a reference to the experience from the CEDR member countries. The last chapter offers a review of recent research projects on noise reducing devices.

For NRAs, it is important to recognise changes in time in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide more resilience for existing and proposed roads. Acting on climate change is not a unified topic for road owners; both mitigation and adaptation to climate change are different sub-topics. Despite the dissimilarities, adaptation and mitigation share the need for long-term planning for an uncertain but undoubtedly different future. Both topics are, therefore, presented in this report.
