Cet article s'intéresse à l'effet des transferts monétaires des migrants internationaux sur l'environnement, à travers l'exemple de la déforestation dans les pays en développement. D'un point de vue théorique, l'effet des transferts migratoires sur la réduction des surfaces forestières apparaît indéterminé. Nous examinons cette relation à partir d'un échantillon comprenant 102 pays pour la période allant de 1990 à 2005. Le profil observé pour le PIB par tête s'avère contraire à l'hypothèse de courbe environnementale de Kuznets, tandis que la part des transferts migratoires reçus dans le PIB vient réduire le taux de déforestation pour l'ensemble des pays considérés
