ITAIPU Binacional is the world’s largest generator of renewable clean energy, binational property of Paraguay and Brazil, and located on the Paraná River, within the limits of the city of Hernandarias on the Paraguayan side. ITAIPU is the engine of Paraguay’s technological, social, cultural, and environmental development, promoting various communitarian, inter-institutional, and multinational projects, seeking to contribute to creating a sustainable society. Its area of influence makes up the ITAIPU Biosphere Reserve, recognized by UNESCO in 2017.
The ITAIPU MUSEUM was created in 1979 to house the samples from the archaeological, historical, anthropological, and flori-faunistic research carried out in the departments of Alto Paraná and Canindeyú during the construction of the dam and the creation of the reservoir. Over the years, it has become one of the country’s leading museums, carrying out conservation, research, and educational programs to promote the region’s cultural and natural heritage.
The meeting will take place at the Visitors Reception Center of ITAIPU, located in Hernandarias, Paraguay.
