Post Crisis Implications for Governance: Public and Private Transnational Networks

What is the role of transnational policy networks and paradigms in environmental policy and energy innovation in Latin America? Since the 1972 Stockholm Convention, the EU has made support of livelihoods a core component of its sustainable development agenda. Case studies will focus on the use of European funds to convert a Mexican garbage dump to a biogas station while securing livelihoods for evicted residents; the prospects for external support of small scale collectives in waste collection in Central America; market constraints on the Green Grease restaurant oil–to-diesel biofuels project in Brazil, and challenges and opportunities created by US-Brazil biofuels partnerships. Panel Discussion takes place as part of Center for the Study of Europe workshop on Financial Stability and Energy Security. RSVPs encouraged!
