Main Results of the First Conference of the Parties of the Escazú Agreement (CoP1)


Why did CoP1 of the Escazú Agreement mark a historic moment in the Latin American and Caribbean region?

The Escazú Agreement is a milestone since it is the first regional instrument specialized in environmental protection with a human rights perspective. It establishes a common floor, that is, basic standards for States to make decisive progress in strengthening environmental and climate justice.

The Agreement is a transversal tool that impacts all economic sectors and that forces us to rethink development models considering the voices, experiences and contributions of everyone, especially those people, groups and social movements that have historically been marginalized from the decision-making processes.
