Access to high-quality, safe, and resilient infrastructure is necessary for sustainable growth and development, as it is a crucial contributor to reducing poverty and underpins modern society. However, poorly planned and designed infrastructure can lead to significant biodiversity loss and global greenhouse gas emissions.

The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework has mobilised governments and businesses worldwide to conserve and restore natural ecosystems to address this issue. The infrastructure sector also needs to contribute to this mission, and integrating nature into infrastructure design can be a practical approach to achieving our goals.

To support this cause, WWF, the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), and AECOM, one of the world's largest consulting engineering firms - have collaborated to create a strategic guide. This guide provides engineers and conservationists with the tools and examples to integrate environmental considerations and sustainability into infrastructure projects.

Recognising this challenge, WWF, the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), and AECOM—one of the world's largest consulting engineering firms—have developed a strategic guide that provides engineers and conservationists with tools and examples needed to better integrate environmental considerations and sustainability into infrastructure projects.
