Despite the expansion of the climate and ecological emergencies and the growing deterioration in the living conditions of the population, national governments in Latin America have not been up to the task of addressing the socio-environmental devastation. The responses have been uneven, ranging from denialism and submission to commercial logic to the violation of rights. In the best of cases, government measures have been insufficient.

Meanwhile, various community and territorial movements have outlined programs for just and popular transitions. These are anchored in territorial autonomy, food sovereignty, an energy transition, and the defense of water, the rights of nature, and the centrality of care. At the same time, on a regional scale, thousands of activists, academics and organizations have endorsed an Ecosocial Pact of the South, which places the calls for decarbonization in a broader agenda, seeking to advance redistributive, gender, ethnic, and environmental justice in the construction of post-extractivist societies and economies.

Five of these activists and academics will provide a snapshot of today’s Latin American reality and will explain the efforts to turn the Ecosocial Pact into a reality on the ground, promoting the ecosocial transformation of the region.

--Carmen Aliaga, Latin American Network of Women Defenders (Bolivia)

--Pablo Bertinat, coordinador of the Observatory of Energy and Sustainability at the National Technological University (Argentina)

--Breno Bringel, professor of sociology at the Institute of Social and Political Studies at the State University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

--Miriam Cisneros, indigenous activist (Andean Parliament)

--Tatiana Roa, engineer and environmentalist, Censat Agua Viva (Colombia)

--Co-moderators: Liliana Buitrago (Observatory of Political Ecology, Venezuela) and Manuel Perez-Rocha (IPS)

A pesar de la expansión de la emergencia climática, de la devastación socioambiental y del creciente deterioro en las condiciones de vida de la población, en América Latina los gobiernos nacionales no han estado a la altura en la formulación de respuestas a la crisis ecosocial. Aunque la respuesta haya sido desigual, suele oscilar entre el negacionismo, la sumisión a la lógica mercantil, la violación de derechos y la violencia patriarcal y, en el mejor de los casos, algunas respuestas insuficientes.

Mientras tanto, varios movimientos y experiencias comunitarias y territoriales buscan construir prácticas y agendas de transiciones justas y populares ancladas en la autonomía territorial, en la soberanía alimentaria, en la transición energética y productiva, en la defensa del agua, de los derechos de la naturaleza, de los cuidados, entre otros ejes. A la vez, en una escala regional, miles de activistas, académicos y organizaciones han respaldado un Pacto Ecosocial del Sur, que ubica los llamados a la descarbonización en una agenda más amplia, buscando articular justicia redistributiva, de género, étnica y ambiental en la construcción de sociedades y economías post-extractivistas.

Cinco de estos activistas y académicos brindarán una instantánea de la realidad latinoamericana y explicarán los esfuerzos para convertir el Pacto Ecosocial en una realidad sobre el terreno y por potenciar horizontes de transformación ecosocial en la región.
