CEDR2016-5 Acting On Climate Change
3.8 MiB

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.

The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) aims to protect and improve the ecological status of water bodies in order to promote sustainable watershed use. Consequently, NRAs must ensure that their water management practices meet the requirements of the WFD. This report examines; when should contaminated runoff water be treated to meet the requirements in relevant EU directives (e.g. the WFD), what is the best practice when treatment is mandatory, and what will the research needs on these matters be within the next decade?
