Loreto. On August 25, a meeting was held between the Regional Organization of the Indigenous Peoples of the Upper Amazon (ORDEPIAA), the Center for the Development of the Amazonian Indigenous (CEDIA) and the Agrarian Agency of Yurimaguas in order to address the related problems to the physical and legal sanitation of the communities that make up the aforementioned indigenous organization. ORDEPIAA participated with 14 representatives from 8 Indigenous Federations that make up the organization: YUYANAKE, FEPICOP, FEBAPA, FECONACHA, FECONATASH, ORCICOCA, OSHASHI and ORPICHACO.
During the meeting, both CEDIA and the Yurimaguas Agrarian Agency presented themselves to the entire audience and explained their areas of work. Likewise, the questions and needs of the communities regarding the physical and legal sanitation of their territories were heard. The president of CEDIA, Alberto Romero, emphasized that the titling of a community does not end the problems of the population, but rather its managers and community members have to be strengthened at an organizational level so that they can better manage their territories. .
After all the interventions, by way of agreements, CEDIA proposed to include the communities belonging to the bases of ORDEPIAA in the situational diagnosis of land tenure and use of natural resources that it will carry out in Loreto in the coming months. In addition, the participation of the directors of federations in the diagnostic brigades would be included, as well as the presentation of the corresponding results of the study to the indigenous organization. In this sense, ORDEPIAA committed to socialize the proposals with the absent bases to make a decision.
From CEDIA we are committed to continue building shared roads together with indigenous organizations to guarantee the territorial right of our indigenous peoples and the conservation of the Amazon.
