Chapter Summary

This chapter contributes to a political understanding of multi-sector partnerships based on a case study of extractive reserves in the Brazilian state of Rondonia in western Amazonia. It explores some of the more recent arguments that support multi-stakeholder arrangements for environmental management and the key issues that are likely to affect multi-sector partnerships. Next, the chapter describes and analyses three different processes which are essential for the setting up of extractive reserves and which guarantee their overall viability-the creation, the legal implementation and the development of extractive reserves, with the latter focusing on efforts to build management capacity and to improve economic viability. It concludes with some reflections on the role of partnerships in grassroots empowerment, the constraints on effective cooperation and coordination between stakeholders involved in sustainable forest management and the requirements for better integration between actors and institutions at different scales.
