Déforestation, croissance économique et population. Une étude sur données de panel
This paper investigates the empirical relationship between deforestation, economic growth and population using a sample of 85 developing countries. The study suggests a U-shaped relationship between the rate of deforestation and income per capita for all groups of countries, in contrast to an environmental Kuznets curve (which is inverted U-shaped). Estimation results show that the growth rate of income per capita has a negative but insignificant effect on the rate of deforestation. The study also shows that demographic pressure can amplify the process of deforestation for countries in Asia-Oceania and Latin America groups. Classiffication JEL�: C23�; O13�; Q23�; R15
