Extractive Reserves: Building Natural Assets in the Brazilian Amazon


  • Anthony Hall


In the Amazon rainforest, Brazil's rubber tappers were the first social group to challenge the predatory development model that is threatening ecological disaster there. Their strategy to set up “extractive reserves”—conservation areas where the local population can harvest non-timber forest products—is examined in “Extractive Reserves: Building Natural Assets in the Brazilian Amazon,” by Anthony Hall.
