Yesterday the Management Committee (CoG) of the Iquitos-Requena sector of the Sierra de Divisor National Park (PNSD) was formed. This is the third of the three sectors that will make up the Management Committee of this Protected Natural Area (ANP) and that will function independently.
Through an assembly on April 4, the CoG of said sector was formed and 4 interest groups were determined to work in the management of the area: sustainable productive economic alternatives in the area's environment, surveillance and control, exploitation agreements and tourism and monitoring and investigation. In addition, CEDIA has been elected coordinator of the sector and the Matsés native community was chosen as sub-coordinator.
The internal regulations of the Iquitos-Requena CoG, which is made up of 17 actors among communities, public institutions, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) were revised.
On April 18, all the coordinators of the three sectors (Pucallpa, Contamana and Iquitos-Requena), will meet in Pucallpa to elect the Executive Committee, the president of the PNSD Management Committee and approve its regulations.
It is worth mentioning that CEDIA was also appointed coordinator of the Pucallpa Sector CoG; while the Provincial Municipality of Ucayali was elected coordinator of the CoG of the Contamana Sector.
The PNSD was categorized on November 8, 2015 by Supreme Decree No. 014-2015-MINAM, this achievement was the initiative of an alliance promoted by civil and public society organizations, convened by CEDIA. Then CEDIA promised to support the preparation of the Master Plan, approved on November 7, 2016 with Presidential Resolution No. 295-2016-SERNANP, and create the CoG so that the PNSD has the management instrument and space participation necessary for its proper functioning.
