«The international community perceives the Plurinational State of Bolivia as a country that is successfully mitigating the extractivism boom while defending the rights of indigenous communities in protected territories. This, however, is far from reality,» says Miguel Miranda, Advocacy Coordinator of the Bolivian Center for Documentation and Information (CEDIB).
To investigate the harmful effect of extractive and related activities on protected territories, CEDIB has partnered with CONTIOCAP to work in four micro-regions: Amazon, Chiquitanía, El Chaco and Tierras Altas/Altiplano. In each of these regions, field teams are trained to collect, monitor and document information and testimonies that will be used to prepare statistics, present evidence and produce detailed reports. This documentation process aims to be objective, rigorous and show the real impact of the extractive industry on the human rights and environmental situation in Bolivia.

To fully implement human rights, we must place greater emphasis on the responsibility of all actors, not just states, to take action together to ensure the enjoyment of rights.
This balance of rights is provided for in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which speaks of limiting rights to «respect the rights and freedoms of others.» However, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights goes further and recognizes that each of us has «duties to the community» and its preamble calls on everyone to promote rights. The drafters wanted to emphasize that realizing the full potential of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was a collective effort.
For everyone to enjoy these rights, all actors socially connected to the problem and capable of acting must exercise responsibilities that are not always well defined. To protect our collective right to health, we may need to recognize that we have a right to freedom of movement, but also a responsibility not to travel in certain circumstances; we have a right to education, but also a responsibility to accept that this may be temporarily suspended or provided online.
