The book is the result of a conference held in Pucallpa, Peru, where representatives from indigenous organizations, environmentalists and independent experts met to discuss different methods for managing the protected areas of Latin America. This is a particularly important issue for the region given that 80% of Latin America's protected areas are inhabited by indigenous peoples. The meeting discussed the cases of Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela, Panama, Honduras and Costa Rica. Also available in Spanish (Documento IWGIA No. 23).
