• The 21st Century Fight for the Amazon: Peru: A Legal Enforcement Model for the Amazon

      Gómez Apac, Hugo R.; de Taboada, María Antonieta Merino; Mandujano, Milagros Granados (Springer International Publishing, 2017-01)
      Written by the directors of one of the Amazon Basin’s strongest enforcement bodies, this chapter describes, in great detail, how a national agency puts together a nationwide system of environmental enforcement able to reach into every activity and region. It also shows how that system grapples with the country’s vast Amazon region amid clamors for economic development, tensions between the central government and local populations, the uncertainty of national politics, and other formidable roadblocks for what could be an international model of ecological enforcement.
