On Monday, October 1 at 11:00 am, a working meeting was held within the framework of the institutional cooperation agreement between the Regional Directorate of Loreto (DIREPRO) of the Regional Government of Loreto and the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous ( CEDIA).
The purpose of this was to socialize the Work Plan drawn up within the framework of the agreement. Likewise, a collective feedback of the proposal was carried out to enrich and detail its content. In addition, they discussed solution routes and procedures for specific and problematic cases in the management and surveillance of hydrobiological resources in certain communities.

Said Work Plan aims to promote Fisheries Management Plans at a commercial level, as well as to strengthen and formalize fisheries management groups in a way that contributes to safeguarding hydrobiological resources and the food security of the communities. Likewise, it seeks to strengthen local vigilance committees to help minimize the over-exploitation of the hydrobiological resource in the different bodies of water. All these objectives will be carried out in the basins where CEDIA intervenes.
The inter-institutional table was made up of Carlos Reyes, Director of Artisanal Fisheries; Hernán Caballero, Director of Environmental Affairs; Delbert Guerra, Director of Aquaculture; José Rivera, Director of DISECOVI and Alicia Rengifo, of the Directorate of Fishing Extraction and Processing; all of them representatives of DIREPRO. On the part of the CEDIA technical team, the specialists in Natural Resources Management participated Betsy Alva, Tatiana Jarama and José Carlo Gil; and the specialist in hydrobiological resources Clara Chuquimbalqui.
