The Asia-Pacific is a global epicenter of economic growth and infrastructure expansion, with massive road, railway, dam, mining, timber, and other large-scale infrastructure projects planned for the region.
These projects can yield substantial social and economic benefits but also may cause serious environmental damage for biodiversity, forests, and environmental services.
This one-day public conference is entirely free and will feature world-leading experts in Asia-Pacific research and development, focusing on the economic and environmental effects of major infrastructure projects.
Those interested in big infrastructure from environmental, economic, social, corporate, and multilateral-lending perspectives will find this a fascinating forum with wide-ranging relevance for the future of the Asia-Pacific.
