The Decade of Destruction, Classroom Version Series
The Development Road

A road is always the first step to rainforest destruction.

A printer-friendly version of this page

12 minutes
Directed by Adrian Cowell
Produced by Adrian Cowell, Nomad Films Ltd



The first nail in the coffin of the rainforest is always a road. First comes a surveyor, then bulldozers, then loggers, then a small settlement, and finally farm families. In Rondonia the name of the road was BR364. Before long all the valuable wood will have gone. Cattle ranches and cash crops are already proving unsuccessful. So far 60% of the land that was cleared is now abandoned. Is this development?

Other titles in the series are:

The Rainforest - The mechanics of a rainforest.

The Colonists - Colonists invading the rainforest.

The Indians - The displaced Indian tribes of the Amazon rainforest.

The Rubber Tappers - Rubber tappers live sustainable lifestyle.

The Politicians - Politicians plunder the Amazon rainforest.
