Sustainable energy integration: A real possibility in South America through the Unasur

Roberta Hehl de Sylos cintra, Celso Maran de Oliveira


This study aims to inspire an initial assessment and subsequent discussion of the
birth and development of the energy policy within the integrative perspective of
the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR). Once established the role expected by this international entity facing global and regional energy demands, it is intended to ascertain the level of completeness of environmental issues within these negotiations. To achieve the desired goals in this preliminary study provided largely by the search and reading of specific literature, the work begins with an explanation of the origins and institutional bases of UNASUR, showing its previous and explicit goals. In sequence, the research is directly targeted to a study of UNASUR policies that include the plans, strategies and specific regulations for the development of the desired energy framework. Finally, as part of the systematic sequence of this study, it is approached the hybrid field
of the inclusion of conservation goals and sustainable use of natural resources and its compatibility with the egalitarian energy policy. Finally, it is prospected the presence of sustainability variables of natural resources and its vital importance to the compatibility between poverty reduction in South American countries and the maintenance of the quality of the environment and consequently the human race included on it.
