Abstract: "This study explored the links between conflicts and effective management of the CCER (Chimalapas Ecological Campesino Reserve) and documented conflict and conflict management mechanisms in Chimalapas. This was accomplished by developing a conflict typology, stakeholder analysis and a stepwise management model. More specifically, we hypothesized that effective conflict resolution mechanisms facilitate improved management outcomes for protected areas. Utilizing negative case analysis, the original hypothesis was revised so that all known cases from the field study were included. The revised hypothesis was management of conflicts is a prerequisite to any type of management of the CCER."
