This webinar in the Sustainable Infrastructure: Putting Principle into Practice series will explore Principle #3: Comprehensive Lifecycle Assessment of Sustainability from UNEP's International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure.

The session will first provide an introduction to Principle #3, followed by a technical presentation on the biodiversity mitigation hierarchy, which can help infrastructure planners avoid, minimize, and offset infrastructure’s impacts to biodiversity. The remainder of the session will include the presentation and discussion of a case study detailing how planners in Mongolia used the mitigation hierarchy to create a country-level plan for sustainable mining development. The session will include interactive activities that will allow exchange between case study presenters and participants regarding sustainability challenges and lessons learned.
