National parks, conservation, and agrarian reform in Peru

Auteur :
BARKER, M. L.

Description :
The first reserves were established in the 1960s, and a major policy revision in 1975 laid the foundation for a national system of conservation units to include areas of three major biophysical zones: the coastal desert, the Andes, and tropical forest of the Amazon basin. The success of the Peruvian system and related measures, including a program to protect and eventually to utilize the endangered vicuna, will depend on policy integration with an agrarian reform program designed to bring landless and low-income peasants into the economic mainstream of Peru. Huascaran National Park serves to illustrate the objectives and the managerial constraints embodied in the Peruvian system.
