Requena. Personnel from the Matsés National Reserve participated in the training on the vulnerability and protection of indigenous peoples in isolation and initial contact (PIACI) in the Yavarí Tapiche Indigenous Reserve. The objective is to sensitize and provide tools to the workers of the RNM so that they have a better performance against the PIACI.
The workshop held on October 23 in the city of Requena was directed by specialists from the Ministry of Culture, the governing body responsible for the protection of the PIACI.
