"The rules contained in the Development Plan -Law 1753, Article 173- were declared unenforceable, which allowed mining exploitation in the moorlands," sources from the Constitutional Court informed AFP.

According to the Court, the first, second and third paragraphs of Article 173 are unconstitutional because they violate the right to a healthy environment.

The high court established that in order to carry out mining or hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation activities, the valuation and granting of licenses by the National Environmental Licensing Authority (ANLA) will not be sufficient. The decision will also be submitted to territorial entities.

The ruling responds to the demand filed by the Polo Democrático (left) to the National Development Plan, approved during the current government of Juan Manuel Santos, to set the country's growth axes in the future.

The Andean páramos, are located in mountainous areas above 3,600 meters high, are considered large water reserves that supply cities, regulate the water cycle and help control global warming.
