El desarrollo sostenible como política en Colombia: un análisis desde la protección de los páramos

Translated title of the contribution: Sustainable Development as a Policy in Colombia: an analysis from the protection of the páramos

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


This article is intended to demonstrates how in the Colombian legal system, the existence of the principle of sustainable development implies an impact on the welfare of people. This relation-shipcan also be considered tense in those cases of absolute prohibitions that prevent a real sus-tainable development in its social, economic and environmental dimensions. In order to show this reality, the authors analyze the legal status of páramo ecosystemsin which, for the environ-mental protectionism, absolute restrictions are created in relation to the use of renewable nat-ural resources and based on collective interest as a banner. The research findings evinced the tensions between the principle of sustainable development and rights due to erroneous inter-pretation and misapplication.
