The Central American Secretariat for Economic Integration (Sieca) plans to develop new infrastructure maintenance and reconstruction regulations for the Central American region, Guatemalan paper Prensa Libre reported.
The new law will be studied by transport ministries in Sieca member countries Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
The need for new regulations arose due to the damage caused to public infrastructure this year by tropical storms Agatha, Frank, and more recently Hermine, the report said.
"Today's reality is making us take into account factors that were not previously necessary and that are now fundamental for infrastructure to respond to the new risks being caused by climate change," Sieca secretary-general Yolanda Mayora was quoted as saying.
The regulations will aim to protect the 13,132km of highways, 23 ports and 10 airports that exist in the five member countries.
