Abstract

La hipótesis de la curva ambiental de Kuznets (EKC) sostiene que la relación entre la degradación ambiental y el ingreso per cápita sigue una trayectoria en forma de U invertida. El propósito de este artículo es probar la EKC para Colombia utilizando datos de residuos sólidos dispuestos en rellenos sanitarios municipales. El análisis se basa en información procedente de 707 municipios en el período 2008-2011. Entre los principales resultados, se encuentra evidencia que apoya la hipótesis de la CKA. Esta hipótesis se mantiene después de controlar variables, tales como la densidad poblacional y la altitud sobre el nivel del mar. Los resultados también indican que el punto de inflexión no es homogéneo a través de todas las regiones del país.
