  14. • Land-use planning is important. Decisions need to be made about which areas will be protected, converted, or substantially managed in terms of rural development. • Third is developing an effective system of governance of the rainforest. Laws, policies, institutions, and the behaviors of people in those institutions must be upgraded to meet the long-term objectives Brazil has for the Amazon.
  15. While the rainforest is home to the world’s largest river (by volume of water) and 1,700 tributaries, about one- sixth of the basin is also made up of largely forest-covered wetlands that flood for long periods each year and support the commercially most important fish in the region.
