IRI Peru Collaborates With Congressmen To Stop Approval Of Bills That Generate Risks To Forests

In October, IRI Peru developed collaborative meetings with the offices of Congresswomen Karol Paredes (Vice President of Parlamaz) and Ruth Luque (President of the Environment and Indigenous Peoples Commission), both members of the Parliamentary Group for a Healthy Amazon. With the latter, IRI Peru has been reviewing the Bills on land management and the granting of mining concessions in Madre de Dios. The latter Bill was submitted to the Plenary of Congress for approval.  Thanks to the request of Congresswoman Luque, the Bill was referred to the Energy and Mines Commission, since the Bill in its current version generates risks for forest concession holders and land use planning in Madre de Dios.
