Lime. Within the framework of the Terms of Reference approved by the sixteenth session of the Multisectoral Commission created by Law No. 28736 of the Ministry of Culture, the Selection Committee, after evaluating the proposals and documents of various institutions, declared to the Center to the Development of the Amazonian indigenous (CEDIA) as the winner for the elaboration of the Additional Categorization Studies (EAC) of the request for the creation of the Yavarí Tapiche Indigenous Reserve. Likewise, the institution World Wildlife Fund INC was declared the winner for the elaboration of the Additional Studies of Categorization of the request for the creation of the Yavarí Mirim Indigenous Reserve.
The EACs serve to delimit the area of the RI and provide greater specificity on the ethnolinguistic identification of peoples in a situation of isolation, as well as delve into their current situation and the measures for their protection. These studies are a necessary condition to carry out the categorization process of the Indigenous Reserves.
From CEDIA, we have been accompanying the process since the preparation of the previous recognition studies on the scope of the proposals of the Indigenous Reserves in question. In this sense, on March 26, the Presidency of the Republic of Peru approved Supreme Decree No. 002-2018-MC that declares the recognition of the Matsés, Remo (Isconahua) and Marubo indigenous peoples in isolation and others, not yet identified, corresponding to the scope of the application for the creation of the Yavarí Tapiche Indigenous Reserve and of the Matsés, Matis, Korubo or Kulina Pano and Flecheiro (Tavakina) indigenous peoples in isolation, from the scope of the request for the creation of the Yavarí Mirim Indigenous Reserve.
At CEDIA, we continue with the commitment and articulated work with indigenous organizations and the State for the establishment and management of protection spaces for indigenous peoples in isolation or initial contact (PIACI).
