smart energy + transportation infrastructure

Infrastructure investments in remote areas can transform landscapes and watersheds, unleashing irreversible, destructive change. Projects' impacts vary considerably and their approval is dependent on small groups of public decision-makers. Investments, especially remote roads, are often economically inefficient and usually have unnecessarily large environmental and social impacts. These characteristics - variable quality, concentrated decision-making, economic flaws and design shortcomings - add up to a big conservation opportunity, one in which good economic analyses can be influential. CSF's Smart Energy + Transportation Infrastructure program provides training to conservationists and decision-makers, as well as comprehensive cost-benefit analyses of infrastructure projects, such as dams and roads. Keen understanding of these projects at multiple levels of society will result in better decisions and large-scale conservation gains.

CSF launches new capacity building program

Knowledge of economic tools in conservation shouldn't just exist on an individual level. In order to make an even bigger impact on nature, CSF is taking its training to the institutional level this month with Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) in Bolivia. WCS was selected by CSF for our first ever In-House Training, funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation's Andes-Amazon Initiative (AAI). WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks.

Economic Tools for Conservation and Infrastructure Planning in the Albertine Rift

From June 11-22, 2012, twenty-eight environmental professionals from eight African nations gathered at the Rwenzori International Hotel in Kasese, Uganda to learn how economic approaches can help them address environmental impacts of infrastructure development in the Albertine Rift.

CSF People: Sarah Naigaga

Born in Uganda, Sarah Naigaga first came to CSF as a student at our Economic Tools for Conservation course in 2004 with the hopes of sharpening her analytic skills. At the time, she had been working with Greenwatch, an environmental law organization, and was involved in reviewing the Bujagali hydro dam. She was also selected as a representatives of civic society organizations to review the strategic sectoral, social, and environmental assessment of power development options in the Nile Equatorial Lakes Region. This process exposed her to broader issues of development and allowed her the opportunity for collaboration with a multitude of actors across several countries.

Análisis costo-benficio del Proyecto Hidroeléctrico Cachuela Esperanza

El megaproyecto hidroeléctrico Cachuela Esperanza forma parte de la Iniciativa para la Integración de la Infraestructura Suramericana (IIRSSA). Se trata de una represa que se construirá sobre el río Beni a orillas del poblado de Cachuela Esperanza. Esta planta tendría una potencia instalada de 990MW, proveería de energía a la población del Norte de Bolivia y permitiría exportar electricidad al Brasil. El informe de factibilidad elaborado por encargo del gobierno boliviano muestra que los daños ambientales y sociales provocados por este proyecto serían masivos: más de 900Km2 de área inundada y casi 100 000 personas afectadas.
