State of the Apes Webinar: Managing the Promise and Risk of Infrastructure Development

A new report from 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? Experts from World Wildlife Fund and Observatory for Sustainable Infrastructure, and editors of State of the Apes: Infrastructure Development and Ape Conservation came together for a webinar to explore this monumental challenge and potential solutions for sustainable development.
