March 27, 2018.- Within the framework of the Project "Restoration of the Landscape and Food Sovereignty in the CCNN Ashaninka and Machiguenga of the VRA", from March 21 to 23, a Multicommunal Training Workshop was held in the Sankirosi Native Community in Cusco. This was organized by the Apurímac River Asháninka Machiguenga Organization (OARA) with technical support from the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA).
67 delegates representing 20 native communities located in the Apurímac river valley participated. They developed topics related to: leadership, legal norms for indigenous peoples, communal management books, evaluation of the life plan, food security and integral farms. Likewise, a research phase was started on the identification of edible mushroom species in order to cultivate them and incorporate them into the local diet. On the other hand, a research process has been started on the land titling of native communities, as a defense against the advance of deforestation.
During the development of the workshop, lists of community members were delivered to the Heads of Communities. Said registers have been designed by CEDIA and are directed exclusively to native communities.
All of this has been carried out as part of the line of action for organizational strengthening, one of the four lines of action that CEDIA works on.
