 This dissertation seeks to investigate, through case studies, elements and processes that lead to the effectiveness of collective actions in the management of common-pool resources, applying the gender lens. This is a qualitative research, based on both Elinor Ostrom's approach to collective action; and on case studies of two groups of women extractivists in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul. These women who work with the baru, or cumbaru, a Brazilian type of nut.
Based on the expansion of Ostrom's approach, a framework model is presented that identifies how the elements of collective action take place in extractive organizations led by women's in two rural settlements in the city of Anastácio (MS).
In addition to understanding how the elements of collective action in Ostrom's approach are present, with emphasis on those related to trust and reciprocity behaviours, this research brings a new proposition: that there is an element of "relationship between families” when the productive organization is placed among women. This "relationship between families" would be a determining factor and prior to the internal and external elements of extractive collective action, pointed out by Ostrom (1990), as it establishes a support network that allows women to act in activities outside their roles as mothers, wives and caregivers. This network that offers conditions for women to organize themselves institutionally, breaking the environment restricted to the domestic and family.
