PROTECCIÓN DE LA NATURALEZA Y UNA NUEVA CONSTITUCIÓN PARA CHILE: LECCIONES DE LA DOCTRINA DEL PUBLIC TRUST.

January 2022

 

The Public Trust Doctrine is an ancient legal concept that can be traced from Roman law and the British Magna Carta to the present. Initially, in the modern era it applied only to navigable rivers and shorelines. Over the past 60 years courts, legislatures and constitutions throughout the world have expanded the doctrine to extend to a wide range of natural resources, including ecosystem services.

 

The purpose of this report is to examine the concept of the Public Trust Doctrine and consider whether its principles might be incorporated into the new Chilean Constitution in order to provide greater protection of the natural environment. With the leadership of Dominique Hervé and Verónica Delgado the report became later a proposal for a constitutional clause called Custodia Pública de la Naturaleza. This proposal received the support of 12 members of the Constitutional Assembly and is today in discussion to be adopted for a future constitution of Chile. 

In this updated version we added a fifth chapter that includes the constitutional clause presented.

FINAL REPORT CCCX 2019 CONFERENCE.

Marshall, California. October 20-23, 2019 

 

The 2019 conference convened just as the civil unrest that ultimately led to the Constitutional Assembly broke out. Topics discussed included the climate crisis, coastal and marine issues, fisheries, biodiversity, large landscape conservation strategies, national parks, standards and best practices for private land conservation, tax policy and conservation philanthropy, and communications. The conference was framed with respect to COP 25 that was to have been in Santiago, but ultimately moved to Spain because of the political situation in Chile.
