This action must be complemented by government initiatives inspection and monitoring, to increase the cost of illegal timber production.

Forest management of small scale has been supported in the Sustainable Development Reserves (Reserve) Rio Negro, Juma, Mamirauá, and the State Forest Maués, by offering training, equipment and support for environmental licensing of the management plans for the Amazon Institute of Environmental Protection (Ipaam).
