About this book

Extractive reserves are one of Brazil's main policy initiatives for promoting sustainable development in the Amazon rainforest. The result of local communities' struggles for control over their natural resources and worldwide concern with the conservation of Amazonia, extractive reserves also represent an arena for exploring linkages between local resource management and the global political economy. References to the importance of such linkages are frequent, but they remain poorly understood. This book addresses this lack through an analysis of the formation, and institutional sustainability of, the extract reserves.


The conceptual framework - common property institutions; national and international developments - their impact on Brazilian Amazonia and its people; the rubber tappers and the development of extractive reserves; conserving the forest in extractive reserves - an assessment of their legislative framework and external support; a common property institution in practice -the extractive reserve Chico Mendes; the interaction of local, national and international factors in the sustainability of common resources; supporting local resource management.
