In this episode of Building the Future, Dan Runde is joined by Romina Bandura, Senior Fellow on the Project on Prosperity at CSIS, to discuss the new PPD report Sustainable Infrastructure in the Amazon. Dan and Romina discuss how better governance in the Amazon can improve the security conditions, as well as opportunities for the U.S. private sector and bilateral agencies like USAID and the DFC to play a role in the sustainable development of the Amazon. They also discuss how a potential Peru and Brazil accession to the OECD could result in better governance and corruption standards that could help the Amazon Basin, in addition to how the incoming Biden administration should approach the region.
