, Index number: AMR 18/1004/2019

Amnesty International has received information about the forest fires reported to have been burning since August 2019 in Chiquitanía. The fires constitute an environmental and human rights crisis and as such the Bolivian State has an obligation to provide assistance with full respect for human rights to the people and communities affected. They should receive full information about the crisis and its effects and be consulted and participate in decisions that impact their lives.
