Latin America is heavily dependent on coal, gas, and hydropower. And governments throughout the region are still expanding mining, fracking, and dam construction. These outmoded industries destroy local ecosystems, displace entire communities, and make climate change worse. We envision a Latin America powered by clean, sustainable energy systems that respect climate integrity and human rights.
