Pichari. The Monkirenshi Native Community received the certificates for its 10 forest plantations registered in the National Registry of Forest Plantations of the National Forest and Wildlife Service (SERFOR). This document allows them to have free disposition of the fruits and products of the plantations when they reach their utilization stage. These plantations also play an important role in the reforestation of timber species in the area.
Monkirenshi, located in the Pichari district, Convention province, Cusco region, is part of the Apurímac river basin. In this area there are plantations up to 25 years old that have involved effort and dedication from community members to maintain them. Many of these plantations, today, contribute to improve their family income.
The registration of forest plantations is a great event in the communities, as it is a guarantee that they belong to them and that only the community will have the right to use them.
Monkirenshi beneficiaries received these certificates on April 27 of this year, in a ceremony presided over by representatives of SERFOR Pichari. This activity is one of the results of the Capacity Building project of the Apurímac River Asháninka Machiguenga Organization (FOCAMARA), executed by the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA), hand in hand with OARA and financed by Nouvelle Planète
