Latin America Forum for Journalists on Subsidies and Sustainable Development
The Global Subsidies Initiative is holding a three-day forum for journalists in Latin America on the links between government subsidies and sustainable development. The forum, which is being organised in partnership with the INCAE Business School, and the Inter Press Service (IPS) News Agency, is part of an ongoing series of regional media forums designed to lead journalists around the world towards a better understanding of the decisive role that subsidies play in key emerging challenges that face policy makers. The forum will take as its focus the energy sector in Latin America, with a particular emphasis on ways that government support has promoted the biofuels sector, and the implications for economic development and environmental sustainability.
