ESCAZÚ: Synergy of agendas for ecological integrity, sustainability and peace in Latin America

CIPÓ took part in the event promoted by the LACEMOS platform. The debate brought together several actors from across Latin America and the Caribbean in order to contribute to the construction of a regional position on the Escazú Agreement for submission to the Forum of Ministers of Environment and the fifth session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA-5).

Carlos de Miguel, head of the public policy unit for Sustainable Development of the Division of Sustainable Development and Human Settlements of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL), as well as representatives of the Stop Ecocidio and Extinction Rebellion groups also participated.

As part of the panel “Peace, democracy and the environmental dimension in Latin America: environmental crimes and challenges from an activist and participatory perspective of civil society in “development projects”, CIPÓ’s researcher, Gabrielle Alves, spoke about “Challenges for activism for peace and democracy: perspectives and recommendations for climate activism.” Alves highlighted the urgency around the ratification of the agreement by Brazil, as well as the importance of the initiative for the protection of human rights defenders and the construction of a socio-environmental democracy.
