Abstract:

The ongoing changes that threaten the Amazon Wilderness - agriculture, logging, climate change - will likely be intensified under a South American initiative to build roads and other infrastructure across the continent. A Perfect Storm in the Amazon Wilderness: Development and Conservation in the Context of the Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America (IIRSA) is a new publication by CABS scientist Tim Killeen, who reviews the impact of this initiative on the biodiversity and communities of the region and proposes strategies for how IIRSA, as a visionary and much-needed plan for economic development, could be even more effective for the long-term conservation and wealth of the region.
