Itaipú Dam & Sustainable Development. A conversation between Duke & UNA researchers. (Full Video)

Are you curious about renewable energy, climate change, and sustainable development? Here is a chance to hear about the upcoming renegotiation of the Itaipú Dam treaty–one of the most important sources of electricity worldwide. In 2023, the treaty that governs the energy pricing & distribution for the dam expires, an unprecedented opportunity to foster development that is sustainable and equitable.

We believe in the power of Itaipú Binational Hydroelectric Dam (Brazil-Paraguay) to transform Paraguay, Brazil, and, indeed, the entire region. To kickstart this multi-lingual, transnational conversation, we heard from Duke researchers and Paraguayan energy experts from G.I.S.E. (Facultad Politécnica, Universidad Nacional de Asunción) about Itaipú Dam and power in South America.
