A new report from the Arcus Foundation and Cambridge University Press reveals how the development of buildings, roads, and dams intended to provide access to markets and resources can also threaten the future of the world's most vulnerable communities and most endangered species. Where can the interests and actions of investors, policy makers, and conservationists converge to prevent and mitigate infrastructure-related harm to communities, biodiversity, and habitat?

 

Join experts from the World Bank, World Wildlife Fund, International Rivers, and editors of State of the Apes: Infrastructure Development and Ape Conservation for a webinar on February 20 to explore this monumental challenge and potential solutions for sustainable development.
