Text used for E (environmental) coding: 
Preamble: (Google translation) Governments have an obligation to guarantee to their peoples the necessary conditions for subsistence and to provide them with the means for their economic development. Consequently, it is their duty to take care of the conservation and protection of their natural resources and regulate the use of them, in order to obtain the best advantages for their respective countries. It is therefore also their duty to prevent an exploitation of such property, beyond the scope of their jurisdiction, jeopardizing the existence, integrity and conservation of such wealth to the detriment of the peoples who, by their geographical position, possess in their Irreplaceable sources of subsistence and economic resources that are vital to them. In view of the foregoing considerations, the Governments of Chile, Ecuador and Peru, determined to preserve and secure for their respective peoples the natural riches of the areas of the sea that bathes their coasts, formulate the following:
Specific words used to code agreement as E (environmental):

Notes (incl. non-URL source for text): 
Until 20170130, this agreement was coded as not an agreement and not environmental. It was recoded as an MEA on 20170130 because, although titled as a "Declaration," member countries ratified it and, therefore, the IEADB codes this agreement as "Agreement." The text of the preamble also confirms that the agreement, despite being titled "on the Maritime Zone" was focused on environmental protection: Preamble: (Google translation) "Governments have an obligation to guarantee to their peoples the necessary conditions for subsistence and to provide them with the means for their economic development. Consequently, it is their duty to take care of the conservation and protection of their natural resources and regulate the use of them, in order to obtain the best advantages for their respective countries." Entry into force date assumed based on 3rd ratification of 3 original signatories. No specifics re: entry into force are contained in the treaty text
