On the other hand, the decrees that created the other RVS refer to the RVS concept found in the SNUC text, which concerns the protection of “natural environments that ensure the conditions for the existence or reproduction of species or communities” in a broader way. However, throughout the long SNUC development process, the category definition has undergone changes that led it to be differently applied in practice. Federal RVS creation and management By analyzing the decrees that created the Federal Refuges, it was possible to see that only one of the seven existing refuges has some direct relation to the protection of fauna species among its goals.

As it was previously mentioned, the nsuc complied with the international hegemonic strategy especially in the USwhich, nsuc the mids, considered that “in order to really conserve natural resources it was necessary to exclude the populations” BRITO, p. Most federal RVS have overall goals related to the protection of natural environments, but they do not mention the preservation of a specific resource, or even seek to protect relatively small areas that safeguard certain aspect or stage of a natural process.

By making snjc more accurate and strict analysis, one can assume that the only human activities that could be allowed within full protection CUs would be non-productive in terms of production of goods, such as tourism, education or research. Como elaborar projetos de pesquisa. Silva classifies the CU categories in three groups according to the land ownership origin and control.

It became the basis for developing the “Brazilian Conservation Unit System Plan”, which first stage was published inand the second one, in Finally, there are managers who consider the category, in a way, lri a forced practice of sustainable development, as it can be seen in the following statement: The first debates held in the country aiming at creating protected areas date back to the Nineteenth Century.


We appreciate the support given by different collaborators in several discussions and we thank the key-informant for his immediate and solicitous collaboration. It is worth highlighting that the bill made clear that the Executive Power could limit or prohibit activities in conflict with the RVS creation purposes; however, such an item was deleted in Feldmann’s clean bill and it did not appear in SNUC.

However, the bill did not present the definition of ‘indirect use’. The Third World Congress on National Parks was held in and it started the debate about a policy able to correlate regional, state and national development, local populations, natural resources and environment in the management of protected areas.

Although the SNUC elaboration process took a decade to be developed, the RVS category definition, specifically, has undergone drafting changes that distanced it from the allegedly followed model the American Wildlife Refuges.

April 04, ; Accepted: A questionnaire comprising 12 questions was sent by email to the key-informant. Thus, the category concept used to create Wildlife Refuges at federal level distanced itself from the goals or aspirations related to its origin in the SNUC process development.

When it comes to conservation units, it is imperative to consider the existence of permanently protected territories. How to cite this article. According to Rodriguesthe Wildlife Refuge category was inspired by the American National Wildlife Refuges, which purpose snux to preserve lie wildlife resources in the country by focusing on endangered species, and it also provides recreation and environmental education.

It was possible to identify the shift in the category focus from specific resources to a broader concept of natural environment as a whole, fact that put it very close to the other full protection categories. The greening of thought drives the time horizon expansion necessary for the understanding the environmental issue requires.

The current study sought to demonstrate that the Cartesian formations and concepts inherent to the contemporary society tend not to allow one to see the possibility of coexistence between the goal of natural resources full protection and the presence of productive human activities. It is worth highlighting again that, according to SNUC law, the RVS category is focused on protecting “environments” rather than “endangered species”, as it occurs in the American National Wildlife Refuges.

In this case, the only land use option would be ecotourism, which can be considered as being of indirect use. It was repealed by Decree No. On the other hand, the documentary research focused on investigating bills, minutes of meetings and public hearings, standards and relevant legislation in order to reconstruct the history of the Brazilian Conservation Units’ creation and management, especially that of the RVS category.
