The Inter-American Dialogue’s work in the Andes region examines opportunities and challenges facing Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Issues include democratic governance, security and drug policy, cross-border relations, and energy.

Lisa Viscidi, director of the Energy, Climate Change and Extractive Industries Program, gave a presentation to the Energy Working Group of the El Encano Institute on clean energy auctions in Latin America and how their intelligent design could benefit other countries in the region.
