Extractive preserves limit deforestation both by the local residents preventing deforestation within their reserve, and by acting as a buffer zone that keeps ranching and extractive industry out of the forests beyond.
Extractive reserves in Brazil
In Brazil, the Extraction reserves are of public domain but the use of the land is allowed for traditional extractive populations. The units are used by these populations for their subsistence, based on extraction together with family agriculture. The aims of these reserves, as determined by the SNUC is protect the means of life and culture of these populations and to guarantee the sustainable use of natural resource.
