CEDR is the Conference of European Directors of Roads. It is a non profit organisation, created in 2003. The report Mobility for humans and wildlife – cost-effective ways forward is the outcome of the work of the CEDR Project Group “Wildlife and Traffic” in collaboration with IENE.

Transnational Research Programme “Roads and Wildlife”

CEDR invited scientists and practitioners to a transnational research programme focusing on cost-efficient road management and mitigation strategies for roads and wildlife in 2013.

The call was developed in dialogue with IENE and is funded by Austria, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands and UK. The programme aims at solving the conflict between wildlife and roads through developing cost-efficient methods for design and maintenance of mitigation structures such as fauna passages.

Learn more about the three projects:

  • SAFEROAD – Safe roads for wildlife and people – Cost-efficient mitigation strategies and maintenance practices
  • HARMONY – Procedures for the design of roads in harmony with wildlife
  • Safe Bat Paths – Fumbling in the dark: Effectiveness of bat mitigation measures on roads
