With the presence of the president of the Council of Ministers, Salvador del Solar, and the holder of Energy and Mines, Francisco Ísmodes, the Government agreed with the representatives of the indigenous organizations of the Pastaza, Tigre, Corrientes, Chambira and Marañón basins ( Cinco Cuencas), the formation of a Joint Commission for Monitoring and Compliance of Commitments that contributes to the sustainable development of the communities located in the provinces of Datem del Marañon, Loreto, and Requena, located in the Loreto region.

The commission will have as its main task the development of an investment plan with axes in: health, education, water and sanitation, energy, connectivity and communication, food security and productive projects, which will significantly improve the quality of life of the Amazonian populations.

Likewise, it will analyze the proposal formulated by the indigenous leaders regarding the emergency declaration of the Nor Peruano Pipeline and the revision of the oil canon law.

Another of the agreements reached is the commitment of the Energy and Mines sector to promote the approval of a law that incorporates the realization of multi-purpose projects to the General Law of Rural Electrification, with the purpose of reducing the deficit of electrification in the Amazon. Likewise, the MEM will install the Loreto Mining and Energy Information Committee, a space for coordination between the authorities of the region and the different sectors of the Government to clear the concerns of the population regarding the hydrocarbon activity.

The agreements between the Executive and the leaders of the Five Basins came about as a result of the transparent and intercultural dialogue held during the last two days and in which the national government ratified its commitment to continue building joint solutions to improve the quality of life and the health of these populations.

The Executive's dialogue with the native communities will continue to achieve final agreements, with deadlines and a schedule of specific activities.


The commission will be constituted by representatives of the indigenous organizations, the Regional Government of Loreto, the provincial and district municipalities of the provinces of Datem del Marañón, Loreto and Requena, the Ministries of the Environment, Culture, Health, Education, Social Inclusion, Justice, Housing, Transportation and Communications, Women, Produce, Agriculture, Economy, as well as by the public companies Petroperú and Perupetro. The Commission will be attached to the Ministry of Energy and Mines.
