Environmentally Friendly Roads  

A Guide to Good Practices for Environmentally Friendly Roads

At least 25 million kilometers of new roads will be built by 2050. While essential lifelines for people and economies, roads are also key drivers of deforestation and threaten our remaining biodiversity. A Guide to Good Practices for Environmentally FriendlyRoads aims to mainstream environmental considerations throughout the life cycle of roads – from planning and design to construction and maintenance.

 This Guide was compiled with the support of the Latin America Conservation Council (LACC) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) – working together to promote a new generation of Smart Infrastructure that balances our dual needs for conservation and development with no net impact on natural capital.
