Latin American Research Forum Features Eduardo Brondizio Friday!

TBC: "The land above, within, and below": institutional complexity and forms of attachment to land in the Amazon

The last two decades has witnessed a myriad of new types of property systems and institutional arrangements related to common pool resources including indigenous and conservation territories, carbon storage contracts such as REDD+, and concessions of land and resource use to expanding agropastoral and mining industries. Using examples from the Brazilian Amazon, we show how these processes are leading to a complex social-territorial matrix whereas land and common pool resources represent at the same time symbols of local cultural identity and territorial rights, global agendas of conservation and climate change mitigation, and the economic frontier of global resource chains.

We hope to see you Friday!
