Principles, Practices, and Challenges for Green Infrastructure Projects in Latin America

By Juan David Quintero

Abstract

This paper proposes a concept of green infrastructure, centered on a multi-level approach to infrastructure development that addresses these impacts. The paper argues that only multi-level solutions, encompassing national policy, sector planning, and sound project engineering, will be able to effectively minimize the impacts of infrastructure development on natural habitats by overcoming major limitations of the traditional project-by-project approach, thereby addressing the long-term impacts of infrastructure development in a more systematic manner.
