The Road to Development: Building a policy case from the grassroots

Authors: 
WWF
Date: 
January 2011

The case study ' The Road to Development' was produced as part of an evaluation of WWF's work in Colombia, and describes WWF's work on the Pasto-Mocoa Road in the Amazon Piedmont region. WWF worked with communities, local authorities, the Government of Colombia and the Inter American Development Bank (IDB) to ensure that social and environmental concerns are taken into account in the planning of the road construction, and significantly, are incorporated into the IDB loan agreement. The case study incorporates interviews with communities in the area of influence of the road.
