With reference to the following extract only, explain why there is intense competition among the different stakeholders for the use of the Amazon Rainforest. Point: There is intense competition among the different stakeholders as they want to achieve different objectives from the use of the Amazon Rainforest. Explanation: The different stakeholders have different views on deforestation and intend to use the Amazon Rainforest differently. Some stakeholders will disagree with the use of the rainforest by other stakeholders. Evidence: Loggers find that when peasant farmers carry out slash-and-burn, they burn the trees. Hence, it would be a better use of land for them to log the valuable trees. Environmentalists want to preserve forests and think that both logging and clearing do equal harm to forests. They state that forests are the most biologically diverse region of the world, and we rely on these forests for oxygen, medicines, and spiritual benefits. Peasant farmers feel that whether or not they clear forests will not make a big difference

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
