To save the forests of the Amazon, countries have been designing new rules, laws and mechanisms. But the effect of these rules are not always good and local people living in the forests respond to them in a unpredictable manner.

My article “Unpredictable outcomes in Forestry” explains more about how local people deal with new rules and how all the attempts to better protect the forest on paper,¬† turn out differently in practice.
