Cooperaccion

Working in intercultural empowerment tools with peasant and indigenous communities who suffer the impact of extractive industries operating within or near their territories



Presence in: Peru
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights, Environmental Justice, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Livelihoods, Right to Information, Women's Rights

In Cooperaccion, we´ve been working in intercultural empowerment tools with peasant and indigenous communities who suffer the impact of extractive industries operating within or near their territories in the Andes and the Amazon of Peru. From economic and legal empowerment to legal actions, critical investigation, access to information, campaign and policy; we work with the men and women who live near the impacts of mining and oil activities aiming to protect, decide and manage their land and resources, get justice with the benefits, and to figure out real alternatives for their lifes and future. Currently we work in Cusco, Amazonas, Apurimac and Lima, but also in alliance with other organizations all over Peru and the South America region.

I am coordinator in a project which provides legal support to indigenous autonomies and indigenous organizations in the Amazonian rainforest of Peru. Therefore, I am in close contact with indigenous leaders and with local people who try to keep their culture and exercise their right to self determination in their territories. I would like to share experiences with people who work in this area, and if it is possible, to obtain finantial support for improving the capacities of local people for doing legal defense by themselves. I am a peruvian lawyer, with a Dr. jur and LL.M. by Georg August University of Göttingen. I am especialized in International Environmental Law, Right of Natural Resources, and Human Rights. I have several years of work experience on environmental conflict management and in strategic litigation. I am also researcher at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
