Don, Andressa, Cydney and Scott Pippin in partnership with WWF, published a Topic Brief "The Impacts of Infrastructure Sector Corruption on Conservation" that contributes to the knowledge base of the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption (TNRC) Consortium, funded by USAID. The introductory brief helps conservation practitioners understand corruption risks throughout the infrastructure lifecycle, how the risks influence conservation outcomes, and how organizations may respond. The TNRC works to "improve biodiversity outcomes by equipping practitioners to address the threats posed by corruption to wildlife, fisheries, and forests". The brief is available here and a recording of the presentation of the brief along with a panel discussion is available here.
