dc.description.abstract "Chunhuhub, a Maya ejido in the forests of Quintana Roo, Mexico, is one of several ejidos in the area that are attempting to manage their forest cover according to ejido rules, that is, collectively. The Mexican government currently views the ejido system as less than ideal. it is considering the abolition of the ejido system and privatization of the land. Yet these ejidos of Quintana Roo are currently managing the forest resource rather well, in spite of extreme pressure from 'demographics' and developers. Current and future research will reveal what factors affect management planning and outcomes, strong local leadership and sympathetic government agents have already emerged as obvious factors in success." en_US
