Catherine Tucker, assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Indiana, Bloomington, will present on "Conflict, Compromise and Community: Managing Forests and Water Resources in Western Honduras." 

Achieving forest conservation becomes particularly difficult when multiple stakeholders assert rights, the resource base is threatened with degradation, and property rights are disputed. The Montana Camapara Reserve exists within these challenges. Drawing on theories of institutional analysis and environmental conflict management, Tucker will explore how the reserve developed collaboratively and why it has endured despite ongoing tensions.
