SNUC – Leis de Crimes Ambientais by Elder Santos on Prezi

This lack of regulation that ignores the importance of discussing the location of this category – which is predominantly composed of private ldi – in a sort of intersection between the full protection and sustainable use groups, generates often-insurmountable obstacles to the management process.

Thus, it would be applied to a context in which it would not be possible to protect the entire system, but only a key aspect of the process. One can infer certain “lack of knowledge” in these readings.

The environmental crisis may be interpreted as a reflection of the instrumental rationality limits. Innovations for conservation and development. By making a 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.


On the other hand, Feldmann’s clean bill stated that “the private properties held in the Wildlife Refuges may breed domestic animals compatible with the unit’s purposes, according to its Management Plan” SOUZA,Annex A.

Since the ‘s, the focus fell on the industrial pollution control, and it was especially influenced by the United Nations Conference on Environment, held inin Stockholm UN, However, its differential – and source of dissension – lies on the possibility of co-existence between the private properties, which are allowed to make indirect use of natural resources, and the full protection of the covered environment.

Souza even suggests the category extinction or its displacement to the group of sustainable use conservation units. Brown states that, in the s, a new scientific reference about the social function of protected areas became internationally consolidated due to ethnobiology and to projects that consider ecosystems to be dynamic. Also according to Medeirosthe Republican Constitution attributes to natural resources the status of national heritage to be preserved, and it definitely includes the management of protected areas in the Brazilian political agenda.

Salvador, ano VI, n. According to the author, the different CU types were born from multiple factors, namely: 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.

It became the basis for developing the “Brazilian Conservation Unit System Plan”, which first stage was published inand the second one, in All other RVS have areas li 15, andhectares. According to the bill and to Feldmann’s clean bill, protection referred to the “conditions for the existence and reproduction of species or communities”. Revista de Direito e Liberdade.

Historical background of the brazilian conservation unit category Firstly, it is worth clarifying the difference between protected areas and conservation units. Wnuc managers responded between May and August This shift has important consequences, which we will discussed later.

Snu opinion is in accordance with the original inspiration mentioned in the current study. The current study consists of an exploratory research that sought to deepen the knowledge about the RVS by investigating the possible sources of the category within the context of 99885 National Protected Areas System Law.
