Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program member countries share best practices in road asset management, which aims to optimize economic benefits by minimizing maintenance and road user costs.

This compendium presents the best practices for the introduction and development of road asset management based on a desk review of the experiences in the 11 member countries of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program. These best practices reflect common problems the different CAREC member countries face, and the most successful solutions in the development of road asset management applied by CAREC and non-CAREC countries. This compendium also provides a general introduction to the concept of road asset management and presents an overview of its status in each CAREC country.
