The focus of the next PIARC webinar on COVID-19 and roads will be on the lessons learned so far and way forward. It will be held in English on Wednesday 14 October.
At the next PIARC webinar on 14 October, road authorities from around the world will share their views on the road sector in the context of the pandemic. Among the questions that will be discussed: What measures are road authorities and road operators implementing to be ready to face the new wave of the pandemic? What have they learned since March 2020? Have they launched research to evaluate the effectiveness of some measures that were deployed in an emergency?

COVID-19 - PIARC's response
In an effort to share critical, near real-time information on actions taken by road and transport administrations during this crisis, PIARC is rapidly organizing a series of webinars for practitioners and experts to share their experience, knowledge, and some of the most effective responses to COVID-19. While current practices are not yet fully validated and what works in certain regions of the world may not be valid on a global scale, these shared experiences can be valuable tools in managing this crisis, where a good idea now could save lives, improve the resilience of the economy and employment, and minimize service disruptions now and in the future.
