On May 16 and 17, the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA) held the first Multicommunal Training Workshop for Secretaries and Treasurers of Boards of Directors of six native communities and one peasant woman in the city of Pucallpa in Ucayali. This in order to improve their knowledge of the legal documentation of the communities and the management of communal management books, such as the Assembly Act.
The Head of the Native Communities Area of the Ucayali Regional Agrarian Sector Directorate - DRSAU opened the workshop. 25 directors and delegates from the native communities San Mateo, Santa Rosa de Tamaya Tipishca, Nueva Palestiva, Nueva Betania, Sol del Oriente, Saasa and the peasant community Ribereños GUAPRIES of the Río Alto Callería in Ucayali participated. They will pass on the knowledge learned to men and women in their respective communities. There was also the participation of a representative of SUNARP, who trained attendees on registration acts. The closing was in charge of Mr. Silvio Valles, Director of the Regional Institute for the Development of Native Communities - IRDECON of GOREU.
It should be noted that one of CEDIA's work axes is the strengthening of the community organization. In this it seeks to work the communal organization, management and governance of the community so that they can coordinate with different State and private entities.
This workshop is carried out within the framework of the project "Incorporation of 2.4 million hectares of Tropical Forests of the south east of Loreto - Peru, to participatory conservation", financed by RainforesTrust, which aims to contribute to the Territorial Planning of the watersheds of the rivers, Blanco, Tapiche and Callería in the Loreto and Ucayali Regions, formally incorporating 2.4 Million ha. of priority areas for the conservation of the Loreto Region into Participatory Conservation, considerably increasing the bi-national biological corridor Peru-Brazil.
