The sovereignty of the Amazon is untouchable

KEY 1/10

The Amazon forest is located within the sovereign territory of eight nations and one national territory. Not a single nation outside of the Amazon can threaten the territorial integrity or sovereignty of Amazonian nations and forests. The Leticia Pact for the Amazon reaffirms the sovereign rights of the countries of the Amazon region over their territories and natural resources. Regional agreements such as the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO), are in line with other international agreements and the UN Charter.
