Infrastructure and Transport
According to the thematic approach, the topic Infrastructure and transport has the objective to promote dialogue mechanisms to analyze the impacts of the incorporation of the Amazonian territories in the economic systems of the countries (productive and non-productive) through highway and waterway connectivity and information technologies, preserving ecosystems, landscapes and associated environmental services.
For the topic Infrastructure and Transport the following subtopics were defined:
- Transport infrastructure.
- Commercial Navigation.
Within the Amazonian Strategic Cooperation Agenda (ASCA), the actions conducted related to this topic have been concentrated in the cooperation process and regional dialogue for the formulation and approval of a Regulation for Commercial Navigation on the Amazonian Rivers, based on the provisions of Art. III, V, VI and X of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty. The draft Regulation for Commercial Navigation on the Amazon Rivers was initiated in 2010 with the constitution of an Ad-Hoc Working Group.
Recognizing the need to continue the negotiating process for the Regulation, the decision-making bodies of ACTO decided in January 2021 to reactivate the Ad-Hoc Working Group overlooking the presentation of a final draft regulation that collects the positions of the Member Countries.
