IMPACTS OF NATURAL AND MAN-MADE HAZARDS ON ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE AND ELEMENTS OF RISK MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

Abstract

Natural and man-made hazards are causing in average yearly damage of more than 40 billion US dollars worldwide. Among them, landslides and floods are the most frequent. In order to improve management of such hazards, many studies focus on the different topics related to qualitative and quantitative flood and landslide risk assessment from global to national scales. With aim to underline again the importance of these hazards for Macedonian road infrastructure, here we are presenting some analyses, connected with influences of floods and landslides to the Macedonian trunk road network. The analyses are mainly based on own experiences for several case histories in the country. Authors believe that these findings can help in improvement of legislative in line with the flood and landslide risk management stratigies to be developed on national scale
