The Latin American Energy Organization, or OLADE, was created to integrate development efforts in the region by promoting cooperation. Delegates must prepare to discuss pressing matters regarding energy management including market prices, sustainable development and maintaining natural resources in the regions and sub-regions.
Topic: Sustainable Development
Latin America’s climate change situation directly impacts regional precipitation patterns, causing acidic rain and glacial melting. The OLADE must focus their efforts on sustainable development in order to achieve efficient energy sourcing. The continent needs cheap, clean energy and it’s time for this session to address options of solar energy, wind power and thermal energy to upgrade the way Latin America uses energy. Delegates must channel education and funds now more than anything else in order to achieve these goals, while keeping international efforts on sustainable development in mind.
Topic: Maintaining Natural Resources
One of Latin America’s greatest assets are the natural resources. While these resources can be used in several agricultural efforts, if land, water and animal resources are not used efficiently, several of these resources will deplete. It’s up to this session of OLADE to decide how to manage these natural resources and ensure food security in Latin America.
