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.

Evaluation of the economic, social, and environmental costs of planned road projects in the Amazon Basin

In collaboration with the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia, IPAM) and the Foundation for Conservation and Sustainable Development (Fundación para la Conservación y el Desarrollo Sostenible, FCDS), CSF has completed a project simultaneously analyzing the economic return, environmental risks, and social impacts of a set of 75 road sections in the Amazon in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. These projects would cover a total distance exceeding 12,000 kilometers.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
