Latin America’s Lithium: Critical Minerals and the Global Energy Transition

Date & Time

Apr. 25, 2023
10:00am – 11:00am ET


Online Only


In a forthcoming report, “Latin America’s Lithium: Perspectives on Critical Minerals and the Global Energy Transition,” the Wilson Center’s Latin America Program examines the region’s enormous potential to supply the lithium needed to drive the global energy transition.

This flagship report, the first in a series, looks at how US-China competition is reflected in the scramble for lithium in South America, how opposition to lithium mining in local communities could curtail production, and how to improve regulations regarding water use to ensure a sustainable lithium industry in the region.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. (ET), for a virtual conversation with the authors and editor of our first flagship report on Latin America’s lithium sector.
