Useful, up-to-date materials on consumer, environmental and health law and policy in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are very hard to find, no matter what the medium. Many materials are woefully limited and/or out-of-date. Often they are tedious pieces written by lawyers or law professors in a ponderous form that even other legal professionals find difficult to wade through. Sometimes they are written by journalists not trained to take into account business interests and concerns and to consider the “So what?” (relevance) question.

Many rely on a poor understanding of key local customs, concepts and practices and sloppy translation of key texts. This is particularly true of Brazil – perhaps because many analysts and consultants never bother to truly learn and utilize Portuguese and get to know Brazil and its mindset.
