Interesting findings

1) High relative forest dependency in Pando and Acre

- 89-96% forest cover; extractivist culture

2) Dominance of Brazil nuts in Bolivia

- Yields high profit with low inputs;

- Well-developed middleman system for nuts

- Presence of Brazil nut producers’ cooperatives

3) Similar forest-dependency across wealth groups

- Everyone’s in the forest. High value of Brazil nuts

nearly everyone collects


4) Greater income diversification in Brazil

* Higher income from livestock in Brazil

- Regional/local demand for cattle (since 1970’s); access

- Cowboy culture

* “Other” category = government aid

* Government subsidies for natural rubber
