This chapter discusses an analysis of two examples of innovative social movement development proposals that were adopted as public policy in Brazilian Amazonia. It analyzes the factors that led to the emergence of the successful bottom-up policy proposals, social justice, linking of environmental concerns, and land rights. It also addresses the limitations and dilemmas of scaling up alternative grassroots development policies within a state power structure that is resistant to change and is dominated by agro-business interests.

Keywords:   social movement, development proposals, Brazilian Amazonia, policy proposals, state power, agro-business, land rights, environmental concerns, social justice
