Trade in Palm Products in North-Western South America
Conservation through use or through trade has been proposed as a key mechanism to provide incentives for the conservation of species and habitats by turning them into sources of income (Peters et al., 1989; Wild & Mutebi, 1996). Sustainable harvest and trade of Brazil nuts and rubber are examples of this. Reconciliation between conservation and rural development can also be achieved via trade of genetic resources under access-and-benefit sharing agreements ensuring back-flow of cash generated by the trade.
