Comunidades Nativas de Nuevo Saposoa y Patria Nueva de Mediación Callería

Comunidades Nativas de Nuevo Saposoa y Patria Nueva de Mediación Callería (Native Communities of Nuevo Saposoa and Patria Nueva de Mediación Callería) brings together two indigenous Shipibo communities in the Peruvian province of Ucayali to monitor and protect 15,000 hectares of ancestral territories. The association has developed an innovative approach to community-led monitoring using satellite imagery and mobile phone apps that enable them to rapidly detect and respond to illegal deforestation. By involving diverse community members, including youth, in monitoring efforts these communities have successfully reduced illegal deforestation from a rate of five percent annually to zero. The results of this community-led monitoring have led to unprecedented coordination with the regional government authorities and law enforcement, enabling the Shipibo communities to regain ancestral rights to lands illegally seized by loggers and coca growers.
