June 2022

IRI Peru recently held conversations with the president of the National Jury of Elections, leading to the signing of a Cooperation Agreement between IRI Peru and JNE around the organization of training activities for a conscious vote and the realization of dialogues with the candidates running for office in each region. The intention is to put the protection of forests and forest defenders prominently on the agenda of the incoming administration and future authorities.  Together with the Foundation for Conservation and Development, IRI has prepared a conceptual document on the electoral dialogues. Work has been initiated with the IRI local chapters of Madre de Dios, Ucayali, Iquitos and San Martín, and work has been done to coordinate with other actors such as the Mesa de Concertación de Lucha contra la Pobreza, the Red Amazonía que Late and others.
