CHALLENGES IN URBAN FOREST MANAGEMENT: DEGRADATION BEHAVIOR IN MATA DO PASSARINHO RESERVE (OLINDA-PE)

Edilson Cavalcante de Oliveira Júnior

Abstract


ABSTRACT The Urban Forest Reserve Mata do Passarinho, located in Olinda - Pernambuco, has a long and complicated history of degradation, bringing to the political stage of the environment the social agents and the government. The first, driven by housing demands and subject to low socio-economic development of the locality, constitute the main degrading agent, while public power's secretaries and departments are premised to ease the situation of fires, irregular disposal of solid waste and illegal invasions. From questionnaire applied to three groups defined as important to the problem, observations were made like the most harmful types of degradation and its reasons. From the results, the need of both punitive and educational policies to assist the management of the Conservation Unit was clarified.
