The Government of Peru is gradually advancing in the process of recognizing and formalizing the territorial rights of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. 
In order to document and analyse how titling is carried out and how the local population perceives its impacts, the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), with the support of German development cooperation, conducted a study on the progress and challenges of native community titling processes. this is the summary of the study conducted in the Ucayali and San Martin regions of the Peruvian Amazon.
