EIA guideline for wind power project

Published Date: 

Realizing the importance of EIA for the wind sector, we decided to make an EIA guideline
simply because none exists. Our aim is two-fold: one, to convince the government of the need
for an EIA law in this sector, and two, to assist project developers who want to undertake EIA
studies, even if there is no formal EIA law in place.

To make this guideline, my colleagues have travelled across the country to understand
environmental and social issues related to wind power development. One of my colleagues

Environmental impact of hydropower developments in the Amazon

Brazil has been facing criticism from international institutions and non-profit organisations regarding the environmental and social impacts of the implementation of hydropower projects in the Amazon. Concern mainly arises in relation to the country's supposed non-compliance with International Convention 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples in Independent Countries, issued by the International Labour Organisation and ratified by over 20 countries. As a result, Brazil is at risk of jeopardising its long-term energy plan.
