However, it does not incur in land expropriation as long as the activities conducted within the property are in compliance with snjc goals of the protected area. Efforts to diagnose the productive rationality of landowners inserted in RVS as well as to properly manage – through the expropriations provided by law – the lands where snuuc rationality is not compatible with the CU may constitute the first steps towards the RVS effectiveness. Since the ‘s, the focus fell on the industrial pollution control, and it was especially influenced by the United Nations Anuc on Environment, held inin Stockholm UN, This definition of indirect use involves serious limitations, since it is almost impossible to identify any production activity that does not imply at snud consumption or collection.

In a world of complex social and environmental societies, the ways of understanding the changes must evolve accordingly.

Methodology The herein presented research encompasses literature review and documentary research, as well as interviews done 995 a key-informant who participated in decisive moments related to the preparation of the National Conservation Unit System, which is a public policy that suc the Wildlife Refuge category in In this case, the only land use option would be ecotourism, which can be considered as being of indirect use.

According to the 9895 BRASIL,the RVS must ensure conditions for the existence and reproduction of local flora species or communities as well as of resident or migratory fauna. On the other hand, the decrees that created the leo RVS refer to the RVS concept found in the SNUC text, which concerns the protection of “natural environments that ensure the conditions for the existence or reproduction of species or communities” in a broader way.

This link is consistent with the statements by the key-informant interviewed during the development of current research. In other words, the focus shifted from species and communities to the environment. Thus, the delimitation of protected areas emerged as a response to international criticism, and many of these initiatives excluded and sometimes expelled local populations.


This exception was kept in SNUC publication, and the cultivation of compatible plants was also added to it change made by Gabeira’s clean bill.

Salvador, ano VI, n. It could be concluded that the difficulties generated by the category location in an intersection between full protection and sustainable use, combined with the lack of regulation, are expressed in many different levels of relationship with the RVS.
