Vulnerability Assessment of Samoa Road Network

Our Role

SMEC is undertaking a vulnerability assessment of the Samoa Road Network.

SMEC’s scope of work includes:

  • Identifying geographical areas with higher hazard and exposure risks
  • Identifying priority geographical areas that are vulnerable to existing and future disaster risks
  • Assessing the likely severity and frequency of risk impacts for all major links of the road network
  • Assessing the impact of loss of connectivity and access in priority areas
  • Identifying potential adaptation options that respond to the assessed vulnerabilities
  • Developing a prioritised program of investments at specific locations to improve the resilience of the road network
  • Preparing tools to assess the vulnerability of road assets to current and future climate events

Project Overview

The objective of the project is to prepare a climate change and natural hazard vulnerability assessment and climate resilience/adaptation strategy for the country’s entire road network. This includes more than 1,150 km of roads covering Samoa’s two principal islands of Upolu and Savai’i.
