Foreign Minister Mario López Chávarri reported today that the Executive has recommended to the Congress of the Republic the approval of the Escazú Agreement, the regional treaty that promotes access to information, public participation, and justice in environmental matters in Latin American and Caribbean countries.

During his participation in the virtual session of the Foreign Relations Commission, and when asked by Congressman Alberto de Belaunde (Purple Party), López Chávarry announced the government’s position.

“This agreement has been forwarded to Congress for approval, reflecting the favorable positions of all sectors, including the favorable position of the Foreign Ministry,” he said.

The minister indicated that “there was the agreement of nine ministries”, the Judiciary, the specialized environmental prosecutors and the Ombudsman.

“The Executive, agrees with its ratification (of the treaty), but nevertheless, (…) there must be a social politician who must contribute to show its objectives, as well as answer questions but from an informed and devoid dialogue of political motivations ”, he emphasized.

The companies, however, have expressed their rejection of the ratification when alleging that the sovereignty of the country is violated for supposedly having to take discussions that must be resolved at the local level, to international instances.

The Escazú agreement, which takes its name from the Costa Rican city where it was signed, was promoted by the UN and approved in 2018 by 22 countries, including Peru, under the management of the Minister of the Environment, Fabiola Muñoz.

Now, its ratification is sought and so far there are nine countries that have acceded (Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guyana, Nicaragua, Panama, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Uruguay). The Peru country is in the process of analysis and the document is being reviewed in the Foreign Relations Commission of the Congress of the Republic, to then go on to the Plenary.
