CAPAZ Policy Brief 8-2020: CAPAZ Policy Brief 8-2020: Environmental democracy, popular consultations and territorial peace in Colombia
“This document describes the characteristics of popular consultations as a mechanism of environmental democracy, their activation at municipal level in recent years to decide on extractive activities, and the ambivalent response of the State. This is followed by a reflection on the relationship between environmental democracy and territorial peace in the framework of the Final Agreement for the End of the Conflict and the Construction of a Stable and Lasting Peace signed in 2016, and finally, a discussion of the results of the debate with social movements on the above concepts. It concludes with some recommendations on how the debate on environmental democracy should be oriented”.
