Our latest publication titled Sustainable Infrastructure in Latin America: Infrastructure 360º Awards represents the first year of the Infrastructure 360º Awards initiative in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank. This multi-authored bilingual edition of 476 pages features collaborations from all around the world in both English and Spanish in order to facilitate exchanges between academia, infrastructure development leaders and communities. The book includes essays from IDB team, the Zofnass research team, the Expert Panelists, as well as the twelve case studies from the Infrastructure 360º Awards 2014 finalists and the two pilot case study projects of the initiative including a mention of Mitragyna speciosa.
