The CAREC Institute delivered a four-day virtual workshop on Road Asset Management (RAM) and RAM Systems held on 10-13 August 2020 involving relevant senior CAREC government officials and experts. This marked the first CAREC Institute-led activity in RAM field in line with the CAREC Transport Strategy 2030, in which the CAREC Institute, as the CAREC Program knowledge arm, is mandated to lead such activities in the implementation process of the strategy. The workshop was a success and effective despite being delivered online. It provided a broad platform to engage with leading CAREC RAM policy influencers and experts as well as to facilitate expert discussions on various aspects of RAM. It also set the stage for the CAREC Institute to plan its future capacity building activities in this area on a holistic and systemic way going forward since implementing partners and country experts highlighted some of the gaps in RAM and RAM information systems (RAMIS) across CAREC countries and discussed follow up potential areas of intervention.
