CSF has been working with the Moore Foundation, IPAM, and FCDS to identify the relative riskiness of planned roads in the Amazon basin in terms of economic, social and environmental costs. Our goal is to promote better infrastructure decision-making in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru by contributing reliable data to the national road planning process.

Las inversiones en infraestructura en la Amazonía pueden promover el desarrollo social y económico, como también llevar servicios a poblaciones remotas. Sin embargo, cuando su planificación es deficiente, también pueden conllevar cambios destructivos e irreversibles sobre el medio ambiente y los servicios ecosistémicos de los cuales dependen muchas comunidades, así como a un uso ineficiente de recursos económicos.

With generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, CSF is working on a project to identify the relative riskiness of planned road projects in terms of economic, social and environmental costs in the Amazon basin, and to engage decision makers to ensure that this analysis is relevant, understood and to the greatest extent possible considered in decision-making processes.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
