The Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous - CEDIA works with the Regional Agrarian Directorate (DRA) of Cusco, by signing an agreement, since May 2014. In those years, RM 0345-2015-MINAGRI indicated that the Regional Directorates They had to send the land classification studies to the General Directorate of Agrarian Environmental Affairs (DGAAA) of the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI) so that they can be approved. As a result, the titling process is trapped so, unlike other regions, Cusco acquiesced in said RM and only one of several land classification files was approved by the DGAAA. This was delaying the process, since the land classification determines that the lands with agricultural and pasture aptitude are titled and the lands with forestry aptitude are granted in a contract of assignment of use.
Subsequently, in May of this year, RM 0194-2017-MINAGRI was issued, which establishes that land classifications should not be so rigorous and an agrological evaluation report of land should be prepared for titling purposes. That is to say, it is something more feasible and that would be in charge of the DRA and no longer of the DGAAA. This gave another dynamic to the community titling process; With this, the areas that are titled and given in use to native communities are more clearly determined.
As a result of this, the DRA Cusco developed the agrological evaluation that was finally approved, thus issuing 15 titling resolutions of native Machiguenga and Ashaninka communities located in the Urubamba Valley and Apurímac Valley in Cusco: Alto Picha, Aendoshiari, Koribeni, Monte Carmelo , Sababantiari, Shimaa, Shibankoreni, Tivoriari, Porenkishiari, Chirumbia, Ashaninka Yevanashi, Kiruchiariato, Huayanay, Maketi and Mokirenshi. CEDIA has provided technical and financial support to DRA Cusco to complete the work started through the agreement signed in 2014.
Currently, the issuance of property titles, registration and delivery to the beneficiary communities is being awaited. This may take time because the DRA Cusco does not have an area of native communities, unlike Loreto and Ucayali. In addition, recently, on November 6, the property title format for native communities was approved through RD XXXX. This shows that, despite the limitations, there is a greater willingness on the part of the DRA Cusco to conclude this process that seeks to achieve territorial justice for said native communities.
