Choosing the right direction

"If there's no effect, we can safely assume that you can keep harvesting timber at the applied intensities and not compromise Brazil nut production," Guariguata says. "If there is a negative effect, local producers can then decide whether they keep harvesting the timber in their forest or not. And if there's a positive effect then we have a win-win situation."
