Am 5. August 2016 erteilte die brasilianische Umweltbehörde IBAMA dem geplante Wasserkraftwerk São Luiz do Tapajós im nordbrasilianischen Bundesstaat Pará im Herzen des Amazonas eine Absage. Der Energiekonzern Elektrobrás hatte versucht, für das geplante Wasserkraftwerk São Luiz do Tapajós die bauliche Genehmigung der Behörde zu erhalten. Durch das Projekt war das Territorium der 12.000 Indigene vom Stamm der Munduruku bedroht. Der gigantische Staudamm sollte mit einer Länge von 7,6 Kilometern die Nennleistung von 8.000 Megawatt erreichen, dafür hätten riesige Flächen des tropischen Regenwaldes weichen müssen.

On 5 August 2016 the Brazilian environmental agency IBAMA cancelled the process for licensing the São Luiz do Tapajós megadam in the heart of the Amazon. The 8,000-megawatt São Luiz do Tapajós dam would have been the sixth-largest hydroelectric dam in the world, spanning the five-mile wide Tapajós river and drowning 376 sq km (145 sq miles) of rainforest that is home to some 12,000 Munduruku Indians. But in an unexpected announcement, the Ibama protection agency on Thursday cancelled development permits saying that an environmental impact study submitted by a consortium of Brazilian, European and other companies seeking to build the dam had failed to present enough evidence to judge its social and ecological impacts.
