Un progetto di formazione nel bel mezzo dell'Amazzonia Abbiamo sviluppato un sistema di monitoraggio comunitario per l’estrazione petrolifera in due comunità indigene, Shipibo-Konibo, nella foresta amazzonica. Abbiamo inoltre eseguito una Valutazione di Impatto per i Diritti Umani. Le comunità sono state in grado di dimostrare diversi sversamenti e fuoriuscite di petrolio e le svariate violazioni dei diritti umani e hanno preso parte a un tavolo di negoziazione con la compagnia. Come risultato, queste comunità di Canaan de Cachiyacu e Nuevo Sucre hanno ottenuto un risarcimento monetario, nuove infrastrutture e un nuovo pozzo di acqua potabile. L’età media (che era di 28 anni all’inizio del primo studio) è aumentata da allora.
