COSTA SILVA, Ricardo Gilson da. Agents, processes and conflict in the territorial management in Rondônia state (Brazil). Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.45, pp.319-344. ISSN 0718-6568.

One geographical issue that came from the modernization process in Amazon’s cattle raising lands lies on the demand for new rural areas, serving both agricultural and agro-industrial capital expansion, and on the other way, the expropriated peasants necessities. The conversion of new areas on cattle farms have become a central problem for geography, as far as the territory use functions as a contradictory condition to social groups/classes reproduction, as they are linked in this process. The article analyzes the geography that is configured in Porto Velho municipality region, located in the north part of Rondônia state (Brazil), where the emergence of pioneer fronts resulted in private occupation on public areas and consequently, social and territorial pressure expanded over Conservancy Land Areas and Indigenous Territoy. Thus, the Socioeconomic and Ecological Spatial Zoning planned to occur in Rondônia state, suffers permanent modifications, being confronted by the multiple territorial agents, expecting the formulation of new territory use.

Palabras clave : Rondônia; territory management; pioneer fronts; agrarian geography.
