The rights would include: the right to life and existence, the right to continue vital cycles and processes free from human alteration; the right to pure water and clean air and many others.
In recent decades, Bolivia’s natural resources have been threatened by environmental changes, particularly rising temperatures, which are leading to the dissipation of glaciers that have long been a source of water and electricity for Bolivians. The law seeks to mitigate some of the damage caused by these changes.
The law is the first of its kind and may be a revolutionary step in reforming the legislative stance on environmental issues.
So does this law really have potential to curb environmental damage or is it more about a reform in attitude?
