Title: Scale Of Interactions Of Brazilian Populations (caicaras And Caboclos) With Resources And Institutions
Author: Begossi A.
Abstract: One important question concerning the sustainability of local or native populations refers to their interactions with local and global institutions. We should expect that populations with the capacity to interact economically and politically with institutions, might have a better chance for ecological and cultural continuity as well as for trade and subsistence. The level of ecological and social interaction of local populations, following concepts from ecology, occurs at different scales: for example, from the territories of individual fishers in the Atlantic Forest coast to communal organized Extractive Reserves in the Amazon. The scale of organization (individual/family/community) may influence the capacity to deal with institutions. This study analyzes how Brazilian native populations, especially caicaras of the Atlantic Forest coast, and caboclos from the Amazon, have interacted with regional, national and global institutions, concerning environmental demands. Concepts such as common management, natural capital, resilience and sustainability are useful when trying to understand these illustrative cases.
