The Escazú Agreement is the first globalist environmental agreement made for Latin American Countries, similar to Europe's Aarhus Convention. It promotes a process of "environmental institutional transformation", "transparency", "multi-lateralism", "the right for information", "Human Rights" and the 2030 Agenda with the pretext of combating the killings of leftist environmentalist agents. Supposedly 227 activists were assassinated in the world 2020.[1]

This agreement, influenced by regional progressivism, filled with organizations that are dominated by themselves, and which have only served to create a parallel industry, blocks economic projects, and, persecutes political rivals.

In this particular case, the Agreement seeks, under the laudable umbrella of the right to "live in a healthy environment and have sustainable development", that human rights and transparency of information are (even more than they already are) intruded into the economic and environmental development processes. The aim is to judicialize the processes and create a new industry, but which will have to do with "environmental human rights".

A new industry, similar to the one derived from ILO Convention 169 and the tangle of obstacles of environmental courts that seek to obstruct and block investments and decisions that are important and essential for a country's development.

Of 33 countries in the region, only 24 participated in the negotiation of the Agreement. Among those that did not participate, Cuba and Venezuela stand out, two countries that are not only communist but also do not have a single positive economic policy to their credit. Not a single achievement in the development process of their countries, and who intend to export their "revolution" this time by force using the modality of narco-terrorism.

Evidently they are the ones who inspire the minds of all the regional progressivism, represented as the heirs of the São Paulo Forum, the Puebla Group. To the 24 negotiating countries, 3 more were added as signatories. But of these, only 10 have ratified, and one more is needed for the Agreement to enter into force. Regional agricultural powers have not signed: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Paraguay and Peru. Uruguay ratified during the previous government.

In view of what has been seen in the region, it is natural that the most advanced countries in agricultural matters are reluctant to ratify an agreement that will be detrimental to their interests and will lead to the judicialization and hindering of an area of the economy that has a strong impact on the work of millions of people and the welfare and development of entire nations.

Clearly, the quality of an agreement that has not yet entered into force cannot be evaluated, but suffice it to say that this one, under the auspices of ECLAC, does not have much good to do. ECLAC itself has been the regional organization that has introduced ideologization into economic development issues, hindering modernization, entrepreneurship and the development that everyone longs for. Moreover, ECLAC has not promoted a single public policy that has been beneficial or positive. A record, which makes us foresee the disastrous results of this Agreement, its latest initiative. The IDB was saved from the clutches of regional progressivism in its very recent election. It is to be hoped that this Agreement will not see the light of day since, without doubt or equivocation, it will only depress the regional economies, the progress of their people.[2]


The agreement originates as a result of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), held in 2012, and the Santiago Decision adopted in 2014 by 24 countries. Since that time, a negotiation process was carried out among the 24 interested countries, through a commission co-chaired by the delegations of Chile and Costa Rica. After four years of negotiations, the Regional Agreement was adopted on March 4, 2018 in the Costa Rican city of Escazú.

This agreement was the first made by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), an agency of the United Nations. The agreement was signed by 14 countries on September 27, 2018 in the framework of the annual meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, and subsequently by 10 more countries and is awaiting the respective ratification process by each signatory State.

The First Sebastián Piñera Administration promoted the agreement and later on in the Second Admin. they retracted it, Piñera was accused of false advertising by the Left for trying to promote the globalist environmental agenda while not signing the agreement.[3]

Chile chaired the "mitigation coalition against climate change" thanks to its promotion of the Agreement.[4]

Piñera's Government argued that the agreement diminished sovereignty, specially with article 11 that talks about "consideration and cooperation with landlocked countries" causing a posible obligation with neightboring Bolivia.[5]

Gabriel Boric's Administration signed the Agreement in March 2022.
