In the face of current international negotiations on climate change and with full respect to our ancestors and our Mother Earth, the indigenous peoples and communities represented in the organizational structures of El Salvador that integrate the CCNIS, endorse the current Declaration,

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THAT:
