Green Roads for Water

Roads, especially highways, are massive structures. They are part of the landscape and affect the hydrology of entire areas. With appropriate design and planning by various stakeholders, they can be used to harvest surface runoff for groundwater recharge and increasing soil moisture for the benefit of agriculture. So while transporting people from A to B, they can also be used as instruments to improve food security and achieve resilience to climate variabiity.
