Abstract

This article reflects on an approach to the scope of the right to environment in Colombian constitutional jurisprudence and it focuses specifically on the precautionary principle as hermeneutical criterion used by the jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court to determine the need for intervention by public authorities, to potential damage to the environment and public health. Thus, this paper aims at enunciating the map of the jurisprudence of the Court in decisions about this point.
