Ecuador Constitution recognizes the inalienable rights of ecosystems to exist and flourish, giving people the authority to petition on behalf of ecosystems, and requiring the government to remedy violations of these rights; so that rivers and forests maintain their own right to exist and are not just a property. Under these laws, for example, a citizen can file a lawsuit on behalf of an injured channel, recognizing that the health of the water source is crucial for the common good.
