The book is an evaluative study of the implementation of the legal figure of 'peasant reserve zones' in Colombia. The figure is an attempt to recognize the rights to land of traditional farmers, to build the basis for a pacific resolution of land ternure-related conflicts in the country, and to promote sustainable use of rural resources to avoid deforestation. The results show an ambiguous success of the implementation. The figure is generally useful to control deforestation, to stabilize peasant economies, and promote collective action. But different political and economic interests are blocking its complete implementation.
Translated title of the contributionPeasant Reserve Zones. Challenges and experiences in their implementation.
