Amnesty International believes that this dispute largely stems from the fact that the Bolivian authorities failed to carry out free, prior and informed consultation on the TIPNIS road project when they should have done. Amnesty International takes no position for or against the building of the road inside the TIPNIS. However, it reminds the State that it has a duty to provide comprehensive information to the communities in a transparent, accessible and culturally appropriate way so that they can take a position on it in full knowledge of the facts.
