Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve, Brazil
In May 2002, there was a review of the approach taken in management of the Mamiraua Sustainable Development Reserve in Brazil. This review yielded many valuable lessons regarding how to begin to reconcile conservation and development objectives with an economically poor and socially marginalized area. It analyses the approach adopted for collaborative management in fisheries and forestry, in creating enabling policy frameworks, and the introduction of alternative economic activities based on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
