Social and technical exploration in pilot region Cumaribo
Today the Land in Peace team in company of IGAC and Esri met Hernando Sanchez. He was the first indigenous mayor of Cumaribo and former governor of the reserve Santa Terecita del Tuparro. Don Sanchez perfectly explains the importance of formalising land. “We request the National Land Agency to help us define the boundaries of the land of the peasants around our reserve and formalise these lands in order to have the boundaries clearly set between the indigenous reserve and the farmers. So we can avoid that new owners of land grab parts of our reserve, because exactly that’s what happens here and in whole Colombia."
