BUILD Year 4 Annual Report: October 1, 2014 – September 30, 2015

Author(s): Conservation Strategy Fund

Publication Date: 2015


Between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF) and partners implemented the fourth and final year of the USAID program: Biodiversity Understanding in Infrastructure and Landscape Development (BUILD). The program aims to harmonize the development of infrastructure with the maintenance of biodiversity in the Andes, Amazon, Albertine Rift and Himalayas regions. CSF has provided technical support to governments and stakeholders in the Andes-Amazon, Albertine Rift and Himalayas regions to incorporate biodiversity impacts into infrastructure planning, approval and implementation. Our activities have included training conservation professionals, media, and infrastructure developers and regulators how to analyze infrastructure projects and incorporate environmental and social costs and benefits; providing analysis tools so that these and other professionals can analyze infrastructure projects; making information about infrastructure development more readily available to the public; identifying infrastructure policy best practices and innovations; helping conservationists and affected people articulate their concerns in economic terms; and helping infrastructure developers and governments mitigate and compensate environmental and social costs and benefits in reality through the facilitation of appropriate financial mechanisms.
