This report identifies three opportunities to lay the groundwork for the development of lasting sustainable energy partnerships based on cooperation around strategic need:

  1. an energy and environment hemispheric research initiative;
  2. an agenda for a sustainable Amazon; and
  3. a new approach to the electricity sector in Central America and the Caribbean.

Four hemispheric organizations are collaborating on this project: The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI); the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); The Brazilian Centre for International Relations (CEBRI); and the Institute of International Relations at the University of the West Indies (IIR UWI).
