According to Conservation International it states, "... Developing countries are now entering their own " golden era" of investment and construction. While infrastructure for agriculture, cities, energy generation and navigation are expanding rapidly, these countries are largely using planning and design methods that will result in ineffective and ecologically destructive projects due to the emerging and unpredictable climate conditions."
It is predicted that poor investment and management decisions risk ecological transformations caused by climate change, which in turn could trigger economic crises.
Sarah Freeman, Conservation Hydrologist at the World Wildlife Fund, and co-author, clearly states, " By Integrating ecosystems into infrastructure we can deliver the resources that will lift the developing world out of poverty and help to minimize the impacts of climate change on the environment..."
