Abstract

While the adoption of the Escazú Agreement is of importance, there are many obstacles in the Latin America and the Caribbean to the implementation of this treaty, especially in terms of public participation. Those obstacles are social and institutional challenges, such as culture of privilege, killing of environmental activists, and COVID-19. This article discusses to what extent the Escazú Agreement can potentially overcome the existing challenges and ensuring public participation for persons or groups in vulnerable situations.
