It also agreed to prioritize two pilot initiatives in two AIDESEP regions, namely the Indigenous Regional Association of Indigenous Peoples in the Central Forest (ARPI SC) and the Urubamba River (Kumaru) Machengega Council.

The meeting was attended by Marcio Hala, director of the new regional administration, who expressed skepticism about the expansion of the forest trades.

Hala emphasized that the facility was not a comparable fund.

In particular, it seeks to build a technical and financial support mechanism for the transfer of climate funds to indigenous and local communities instead of staying with intermediary agencies.

This method is crucial, given that only 1 percent of climate change funding is currently directly available to communities.

The main purpose of the State Administration is to strengthen the political, economic, state and cultural governance of the indigenous peoples and the local communities.

In this regard, it is a unique approach that seeks to enhance and complement other efforts and align with the indigenous territories, highlighting technical and financial capabilities, especially indigenous leaders.
