Belize: EIA 'consultation' neither free nor fair

The sole public consultation to discuss the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for US Capital Energy´s proposal to drill in Belize's Sarstoon-­Temash
National Park did not allow for a full and proper venting of community concerns, nor did it facilitate responses to critical questions impacting the indigenous
communities.
