Iquitos. On Thursday, March 21, 2019, the Regional Environmental Authority (ARA) of Loreto and the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA) signed the inter-institutional agreement through which they reaffirm their commitment, support and coordination to continue carrying out joint work, for the benefit of the Loreto region.
The agreement was signed by Mario Yomona Morey, executive director of conservation and biological diversity of the ARA Loreto, and Lelis Rivera Chávez, executive director of CEDIA.
The representatives of both institutions commented on the importance of the relationship between CEDIA and ARA Loreto, as well as how it will contribute to land use planning, prioritizing the Regional Conservation Areas (ACR) that seek to ensure the social, environmental and financial sustainability of the protected areas managed by the Regional Government of Loreto.
The agreement also contemplates the titling of riverine native and peasant communities that are currently being identified in the process of regional diagnosis of property, tenure, use of land and other natural resources that will allow knowing the current state of communal territories.
