A stakeholder is a person or thing that has an interest in something e.g. the rainforest.
Tribes-They use it for home and shelter Eco-tour Operators-they use the rainforest as a tool for education and for them to show people the beauty of the rainforest Loggers- They use the rainforest as a source of income Animals-They use the rainforest as a home and for protection Scientists- They use the rainforest as a way of discovering things (like new plants for medication) that can benefit others World Government-They try to protect the rainforest and stop things that help destroy it Conservationists-They use the rainforest as a tool for education and they try to protect it
They help spread around the seeds of eaten fruit They eat the fruit then let the animals carry around the seeds, planting more of that species
They tell people how the rainforest is being threatened and what they can do to help stop this They take tour groups around and show them the rainforest and how wonderful it is
Their job is to go into different rainforests and cut down trees They cut down trees in a way that is bad and damages the rainforest
Animals help spread around seeds for plants and animals Animals spread around seeds which will make trees and plants grow as well as fruits that tribes in the rainforest can live off
To go into the rainforests and try to find good uses for new plant specimens They find new plant species then use them in experiments to see if they can be used for medicine or something like that
Help with world environmental issues Ask countries to sign agreements that say that their particular country will stop creating AS many greenhouse gases
They try extremely hard to make people stop mining logging etc in the rainforests They do protest and start organisations that help save the rainforest and the environment like Greenpeace
Rights To not have their home cut down To be able to find food fairly easily To have water To feel protected in their home To have clothes Responsibilities To help distribute plants and seeds so that species can keep growing To only take what they need and nothing more
Rights Tell people off when they’re littering Educate people Access and enter the rainforest (under conditions) Show tourists the beauty of the rainforests and tell them why they are unique/special To have a job Responsibilities Not pollute the rainforest Educate people Be role models But local goods but not things that are made from endangered animals/are ruining the population of a certain specie To respect the laws that try to protect the rainforest and follow them Write laws to protect rainforests
Rights To have a job To make money To be able to support themselves and their families well To not be punished for trying to make money Responsibilities To log sustainably To log in designated areas (not in illegal areas) To not make rainforests diminish faster then they already are
Rights To feel protected in their home To always have food To have shelter in their home For their home itself to stay safe To not be poached for their skin/fur Responsibilities To not hunt animal species into near extinction To keep spreading around seeds for food purposes To protect their families/themselves To protect the forest from other threats
Rights To be able to explore the rainforest (with conditions) To be allowed to observe different species but make NO contact To be granted permission to explore different parts of the rainforest in order to look for new plant species Responsibilities To not move/change around any areas of the rainforest e.g. plant fruit where animals are trying to sleep Not to disturb the wildlife inside the rainforests To respect how the rainforest and to not do anything to pollute it
Rights To be allowed to request countries to reduce greenhouse gases To be allowed to try and pay countries to protect their rainforests To put in the Kyoto (international agreement against greenhouse emissions) into place Responsibilities To reduce greenhouse gases and the burning of fossil fuels in other countries To protect the rainforests and what’s left of them
Rights To be able to at least TRY to protect the rainforests To be able to protest against non- environmental projects (things that hurt the environment and it’s rainforests) and not get in trouble for it Responsibilities To be able to protect the rainforest and everything in it To not stand by and watch the environment along with it’s rainforests be destroyed
What happens if these rights and responsibilities are not fulfilled?
What happens if their rights aren’t met? The tribe will die out People will forget about them What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? The rainforest and the species within it will diminish faster than before because seeds of plants aren’t being distributed
What happens if their rights aren’t met? People will forget how they should treat/behave in the rainforest People will forget how important rainforests are What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? Rainforests will be in even worse conditions Different species will perish faster
What happens if their rights aren’t met? They can’t help/support themselves or their families What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? The rainforests will disappear faster than anticipated
What happens if their rights aren’t met? Animals could become more aggressive because of the stress from everything happening around them What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? More animal species will die out More plant/fruit species will die out
What happens if their rights aren’t met? Cures for diseases that could’ve been found would’ve disappeared because scientists couldn’t explore and look for them What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? Animals could start acting up because scientists have made with the animals and they’ve reacted badly
What happens if their rights aren’t met? Rainforests will have even MORE threats working against the existence of them! What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? Rainforests won’t be protected at ALL anymore!
What happens if their rights aren’t met? No one will be there to help the rainforests exist What happens if the stakeholder does not fulfill their responsibilities? Rainforests simply WON’T exist anymore
What can be done to prevent rights and responsibilities being ignored?
Tribes~ The government have been trying to make “peaceful” contact with tribes so that they can help them
Eco-Tour Operations~ More people can become involved and make it so that they’re (as a group) much harder to ignore and forget about
Loggers~ To dedicate SOME areas of the rainforest with trees to loggers and tell them they can’t go outside that area and if they do BIG consequences
Animals~ We could make sanctuary's which would make certain areas in the rainforest NO-GO ZONES!
Scientists~ Form an organisation/group to be set up with guides and scientists working together so that they can explore the rainforest and be trusted at the same time
World Government~ Everyone can become involved and try to influence the decisions the countries were making and make themselves very difficult to be ignored when supporting the environment
Conservationists~ Get some famous/influential people to support their cause and soon others will probably support them as well
