Forest Conservation and Population Growth Among Indigenous Peoples of the Amazon

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Bremner, Jason, and Audrey Dorelien. 2008. "Forest Conservation and Population Growth Among Indigenous Peoples of the Amazon." Population Reference Bureau

Although fertility has declined significantly in Latin America, there are sub-populations and regional pockets characterized by high fertility and lack of access to family planning and reproductive health services. Many of these are indigenous people who live on large tracts of tropical forests. Conservationists are very interested in protecting the largest remaining tracts in the Amazon, seeing this as a critical barrier to future deforestation. This piece describes PRB's program that examines and reports on the links between fertility, health and health care, and deforestation in Latin America's Amazon basin.
