The Inter-American Dialogue’s Energy, Climate Change, and Extractive Industries Program seeks to improve understanding and communication on energy policy issues in Latin America through research, public events and roundtable discussions. By producing balanced analysis and convening policymakers, corporate leaders and industry experts, we inform and shape policies that promote investment while encouraging economically, socially, and environmentally responsible development of natural resources.
The Energy & Resources Committee is a select group of corporations and organizations that support and engage with the Dialogue on critical energy, climate change, and extractive industries issues in the region.
