This paper analyzes the contribution of the forest cleared for the Amazon economy between 2006 and 2011, as well as the effects of a policy of controlling deforestation between 2012 and 2020. For this, we used the interregional computable general equilibrium model (CGE) CGE-AMAZON, built to capture the specificities and heterogeneity of the region. Estimates of the economic contribution of deforestation to the growth of the Amazon would allow assessing the relative cost of public policies, estimating the implicit value of deforestation in economic dynamics. The simulation results indicate a positive contribution of deforestation between 2006 and 2011 for the Amazon economic growth of 0.3% on the total GDP. This result is reinforced by the economic impacts of a hypothetical policy of controlling deforestation, suggesting a marginal loss of economic growth in the regions.
