Overview

The Fifth Summit of the Americas offers an auspicious opportunity to rekindle cooperation among the 34 countries in the hemisphere whose leaders gather in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, on April 17-19, 2009. This report identifies opportunities to lay the groundwork for the development of concrete initiatives to address the strategic needs of the Western Hemisphere for a sustainable energy future. Four hemispheric organizations collaborated to produce this document: The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI); the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); The Brazilian Centre for International Relations (CEBRI); and the Institute of International Relations at the University of the West Indies (IIR UWI). The laudable objectives discussed in this blueprint will require an effective partnership to address the strategic energy needs of each participating country.
