On the economic factors of deforestation: what can we learn from quantile analysis?

Olivier Damette and Philippe Delacote ()

Working Papers from Chaire Economie du climat

Abstract: The factors of deforestation at a global level have been widely studied in the empirical economic literature. However, the high heterogeneity among countries considerably limits the overall significance of the results. Using quantile approach, we show that some major deforestation factors are more prevalent in high deforestation countries, giving the insight that those factors have been under-estimated in previous studies.
