ARPEL, OLADE AND COICA PREPARE DOCUMENT TO PROMOTE TRIPARTITE DIALOGUE

  • Under the Energy, Environment and Population Program, in which the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), the Regional Association of Oil, Gas and Biofuels Sector Companies in Latin America and the Caribbean (ARPEL) and the Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations in the Amazon Basin (COICA) participate, a socialization workshop was held on the White Paper on Tripartite Dialogue. Its main objective was to present the mechanisms required for the effective participation of indigenous peoples, oil and gas companies, and national entities in tripartite dialogues.

    This activity, which took place August 15-16, 2017 in Quito, Ecuador, was attended by representatives of indigenous peoples, government authorities and representatives of extractive companies of Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela.

    The White Paper prepared to facilitate the processes of tripartite dialogues was presented during the event for its analysis and discussion.

    Through focus groups and discussion tables, the participants could raise their comments about the document from the perspectives and experiences of each sector, thus generating a final document that will serve as a frame of reference for the continuity of the tripartite dialogues in the Amazon Basin.

    The Energy, Environment and Population Program is a space for dialogue and analysis among representatives of governments, indigenous organizations and the hydrocarbon industry in the countries of the Amazon basin to facilitate the development of the oil and gas industry in harmony with sustainable development.

    For its part, the Social Responsibility Committee of ARPEL, which was created in 2001, addresses social issues, among which human rights, relations with neighboring communities and indigenous people, social risks management, gender and cultural diversity, labor practices and the workplace are key topics.
