About this book

The Carajas programme is a vast, official development plan that favours large scale commercial interests like mining, forestry and agri-businesses at the expense of peasant farmers. Lessons must be drawn, for the safe-keeping of other tropical rain forests, from its frequently ignored side-effects which include land-grabbing, population displacement, invasion of Indian lands and environmental degradation.
