A major challenge for the future of tropical rainforests is to combine ecological conservation with sufficient economic revenue for local communities to lead a decent life, now and in the far future. This fundamental question is being addressed by the Projeto Gurupà: a multifaceted initiative involving traditional communities along the lower Amazon river, Brazilian NGOs as well as European donors. Cooperation is sought from local and regional authorities, as well as Brazilian and foreign commercial enterprises.Development (1999) 42, 53–56. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110036
