MK Vereen joined the Inter-American Dialogue in 2021 as a program assistant for the Energy, Climate Change & Extractive Industries Program. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Washington University in St. Louis with a B.A. in Spanish and environmental policy, as well as a minor in Latin American studies. Before graduating, she wrote a thesis in Spanish centered on sustainable development in Ecuador.
On June 28, 2022, the Inter-American Dialogue hosted a webinar entitled “Low-Carbon Hydrogen in LAC – Prospects and Pathways”. This online event sought to explore public and private sector plans to develop the hydrogen industry in the region, specifically focusing on barriers to the production, use, and commercialization of low-carbon hydrogen as well as international and cross-sectoral cooperation strategies to accelerate the implementation of this technology.
This report, informed by the Dialogue’s Task Force on Climate Change in the Northern Triangle, complements the recommendations of the previous report in the series, on themes such as agriculture, water, energy, and finance, with strategic recommendations for US assistance to foster effective and sustainable adaptation, especially through empowering local leadership.
