President Evo Morales enacted the Law of Mother Earth and Integral Development to Live Well. Morales issued the Law of Mother Earth in an emotional ceremony at the Palacio Quemado.

The Law of Mother Earth and Integral Development to Live Well promulgated by President Evo Morales provides for the elimination of the concentration of landownership or landlordism and other components in the hands of landowners and companies, and prohibits the introduction, production, use, and release of genetically modified seeds in the country.

The most outstanding new rule also created the Public Defender System, Climate Justice Fund, which provides that public lands should be distributed to mostly women and indigenous peoples, and orders regulating foreign ownership and control of the property, access and use of the components of Mother Earth.

La ley de la Madre Tierra y Desarrollo Integral para Vivir Bien, promulgada por el presidente del Estado, Evo Morales, prevé la eliminación de la concentración de la propiedad de la tierra o latifundio y otros componentes en manos de propietarios agrarios y empresas, y prohíbe la introducción, producción, uso, liberación al medio y comercialización de semillas genéticamente modificadas en el territorio nacional.
En sus partes más sobresalientes la nueva norma también crea la Defensoría del Sistema, un Fondo de Justicia Climática, que establece que las tierras fiscales deben distribuirse con preferencia a mujeres y pueblos indígenas, y ordena la regulación y control de la extranjerización en la propiedad, acceso y aprovechamiento de los componentes de la Madre Tierra.
