Abstract: Although most countries lack an adequate legal framework for private lands conservation, there has been growing momentum to protect private lands in Latin America over the last decade. This Article describes the legal tools available for the conservation of private lands in Latin America and assesses their implementation record. It reviews both the mandatory provisions imposed by government and the use of voluntary instruments such as easements and private reserves that have grown in use since the early 1990s. It ends with recommendations for an improved legal framework that would enhance landowners’ ability to protect the natural values of their land.
