Regional and local perspectives on tenure insecurity in the Loreto and Madre de Dios regions of Peru

Export citation

Key messages

  • In Madre de Dios and Loreto, tenure security in native communities1 extends beyond the recognition and titling process. Regional and local actors have identified economic, social and political factors that threaten communities’ freedom to exercise their rights after they have received title.
  • According to local actors, insecure tenure is a result of indigenous issues not being a priority in the national and regional political agenda, incoherence between regulations and local realities as well as a lack of progress in decentralizing public roles and empowering communities.
  • Participatory prospective analysis (PPA) allows for incorporating actors’ different perspectives, exchanging information and generating shared knowledge on the issue of insecure communal tenure.
