Benson Venegas: This is a question with a complexe dimension concerning the use and the overuse of those ressources. It has to do with the global implementation of mechanisms or pacts or global enforcements of corporation that really want to create those balances. But only if all countries work together we can get these balances. An example is the result of the global reunion where it has been decided many countries should produce ten percent of their energy from renewable energies. Many countries had gone this way, for example Germany. And 90 % of the electrical energy in Costa Rica comes from rivers. Many other countries are also searching for more efficient ways to us e energy. They are seraching for renewable energies that are more compatible to nature. But if not all countries enter into this global concept of solidarity concerning energetic ressources we won’t get those other balances. Those means are difficult to implement because of the global structure of power and national sovereignty above all other global concepts of sovereignty. So where the challenges are we have to search for mecanisms of corporative and solidarian enforcements of the countries in order to milden those balances.
