Fernanda Rodrigues de Siqueira, Flavio de Sao Pedro Filho, Irene Yoko Taguchi Sakuno, Vinicius de Oliveira Pinheiro


The uncontrolled use of fire has resulted in innumerable occurrences of forest fires in the Western Amazon, causing damage to the environment and society, verifying its association with the effects of corruption, since it deals with the selfish behaviors of some involved actors, aiming the well-being of a minority. This study is a case study that focuses on forest fires and their relationship with corrupt practices and Theory U. It brings as its objective general study of the relationship of corruption to forest fires in the Western Amazon; and have as specific objectives to raise the causal relationship of corruption in face of the denial of Theory U (1), to characterize the factors that involve the questions of the fires in the Western Amazon (2), and to offer efficient subsidies to impact the fires considering the attitudinal convergence of the Amazon (3). As a result, there is a denial of Theory U in the face of the selfish conduct of individuals who cause forest fires, since they are limited to the imprisonment of satisfaction of isolated wills, without seeking to emerge a future with greater social inclusion. The subsidies pointed out in this study allow us to verify the need for effectiveness in the inspection and control actions regarding forest fires by public entities related to the environment. It is up to civil society since everyone is harmed in this process, to self-organize and demand more effective measures from environmental managers.
