Public Symposium on Infrastructure & Conservation

On behalf of Professor William F. Laurance and the team at the Centre for Tropical Environmental and Sustainability Science (TESS), James Cook University, Cairns, Australia, you are invited to attend the Public Symposium on “Infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific: Promoting Benefits and Limiting Environmental Risks” to be held at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the 5th of October (full day), registrations are free but essential and catering is included during the event.

The TESS team are working with multiple government departments, relevant non-governmental organisations, and many other stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region, to incorporate strategic planning of new roads and infrastructure development. Their work aims to ensure future road infrastructure maximises socio-economic opportunities for communities whilst minimising the detrimental environmental impacts that often accompany infrastructure development.

Besides a Keynote by Professor Bill Laurance there will be talks by Dr Reuben Clements (Rimba), Dr g. Balamurugan (ERE Group), myself, and other guest speakers.
