Conflicts over living resources arise mainly from the question of use versus preservation: use meaning harvesting a resource as needed by people; preservation meaning leaving nature alone so that people can’t have negative effects on it. What’s become known as the “empty forests syndrome” has been propelled by a number of issues: lack of funding for parks, dearth of wildlife rangers, and new roads and development projects opening up once inaccessible rainforests. “Reserve-management authorities are often grossly underfunded and, in addition, have to contend with a gamut of secondary problems, such as limited political support, poor infrastructure, overstretched education systems, inefficient legal systems, and corruption,” explains Harrison in the paper.
