The Regional Environmental Authority of Loreto, together with the strategic support of the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA), is visiting 25 native and peasant communities of the Tapiche and Blanco River basin from yesterday until May 27 to publicize the beginning of the process of establishing the proposal for the Tapiche y Blanco Regional Conservation Area (ACR), located in the department of Loreto.
In the meetings they will have with the communities, the work to be carried out corresponding to what is established in Presidential Resolution 144 - 2015- SERNANP will be explained. This standard defines the criteria for the establishment and evaluation of RTA proposals, such as, for example, the contribution of the area to sustainable management, the need for an informative and transparent participatory process, the provision of prior consultation processes and respect to acquired rights.
All of this is carried out within the framework of the project “Establishment of two regional conservation areas for the protection of the Varillales Arena Blanca ecosystem between the Tapiche and Blanco rivers, Loreto, Peru”, which is financed by the Andes Amazon Fund.
