Interesting paper for showing structural differences between large- and small-scale productions, with an informative characterization and a clear presentation of integrated methods that allow the analysis of a local and global issue (deforestation) also looking into rural innovation……

It is an enlightening Policy & Practice entry-level paper for a bright student to get his/her feet wet with this general topic.
