Integrated Environmental Assessment (IEA) of the Tocantins River Basin
Hydroelectric Plants were realized in the medium term, from 2006 to 2015.
Were considered the potential scenarios regarding the socioeconomics of the
municipalities of Palmeirópolis, Paranã, Peixe and São Salvador do Tocantins,
Tocantins State, Brazil, directly impacted by the Peixe Angical and São Salvador
Hydroelectric Power Plants (HPP). As methodology was used the content
analysis of IEA and analysis of socioeconomic data of the municipalities

were partially achieved, especially with the increase in municipal revenue.

social development in the municipalities not corresponding to the forecasts
