The Economics of Tropical Deforestation
AbstractThis paper provides a survey of "first wave" economic studies of tropical deforestation and land use. These studies of tropical forest land conversion are generally at the cross-country level. We also conduct a synthesis cross-country analysis of tropical agricultural land expansion. The results show that agricultural development is the main factor determining land expansion, but institutional factors have an important influence. Income effects tend to vary from region to region, and do not always display an "Environmental Kuznets Curve" relationship. Copyright 2001 by Blackwell Publishers Ltd
