The CAREC Institute, in partnership with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), will host country-specific workshops on Road Asset Management (RAM) in Baku, Azerbaijan during 6-9 September 2022, and in Tbilisi, Georgia during 12-15 September 2022, for leading RAM experts, including senior officials and experts with extensive experience in the road sector, road authorities, consultants, and RAM academics. These multi-session workshops are designed based on the CAREC Institute RAM maturity assessment of the CAREC countries and the developed action plan, which were conducted in 2021.
The core objectives of the workshops are:
• To carry out country review on the implementation of RAM and to further develop the target participants’knowledge and skills on asset data collection, management and maintenance;
• To introduce the road related Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and counter measures as well as to produce country specific improvement plan in GHGs reduction;
• To create a core group of competent asset managers within each CAREC country and ultimately across the CAREC region who can support each other in RAM; and
• To enhance member countries capabilities for bridging capacity gaps among member countries on RAM and promote cooperation among experts and policymakers and influencers.
