Infrastructure & Nature: A Sustainable Approach

  • Date: 07 February 2023

Three-quarters of the infrastructure expected to exist by 2050 hasn’t even been built yet. That means that the way we build infrastructure – where it goes, what it’s made of, and which energy sources it facilitates – will have a huge impact on the world’s ability to meet global climate and biodiversity goals.



In this episode, Kate Newman, WWF’s vice president for sustainable infrastructure, breaks down the challenges and opportunities that infrastructure development will bring in the coming decades (6:10), how the UN’s new Global Biodiversity Framework could help incentivize sustainable infrastructure (19:57), and how the expansion of clean energy intersects with these issues (25:10).
