The Global Congress for Linear Infrastructure and Environment (GCLIE), is intended to compliment the continental conferences, through providing a platform that allows focus on broader, higher-level, global issues and policies that can influence national and international knowledge sharing and bring about positive change. Periodically the continental conferences and the GCLIE will work together developing interest in, and awareness of linear infrastructure and the environment at the global scale. The Congress is chaired by Wendy Collinson (https://endangeredwildlifetrust.wordpress.com/author/wendycollinson/) and Fraser Shilling (https://roadecology.ucdavis.edu/people/fraser-shilling). The chairs are assisted by an Organizing Committee composed of representatives of the major continental conferences on linear infrastructure impacts.
