dc.description.abstractA Brazilian federal appeals court on Aug. 14 ordered a halt to construction on the controversial Belo Monte dam until indigenous groups are properly consulted, The Guardian reported. However, on Monday, the Supreme Court issued a preliminary ruling that allowed for work on the project to resume. How significant is the charge that the consultation process was not properly followed? Will local groups be able to reach an agreement with developers and the government, which argue that the project is necessary to meet the country's growing energy demand? How could the consultation processes be improved to avoid similar conflicts both in Brazil and other countries, including Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia?en_US
