  • Venezuela
    • Since 2008
      • The government hasn't issued any more permits to mine gold/ diamonds
        • In the Itamaca Rainforest Reserve
        • Or anywhere else in the country
        • Followed attacks on local people from illegal miners
    • Doesn't need to exploit the minerals for economic reasons
      • Has oil reserves-> can afford to conserve the forest area
    • The government will now protect both the biodiversity of the forest+ the local people
