National Exotic Forestry Description

Statistical tables that describe New Zealand’s planted forests area in detail, and forest activity data such as planting and harvesting. Data documentation includes details about the origins and generation of the data, Motu contacts, and uses...

The Economics of International Policy Agreements to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation

An updated version of this paper was published in the Review of Environmental Economics and Policy. Please cite the updated version.
This paper provides a synthesis of the key conceptual insights from economics that can contribute...

Financial Contracts and the Management of Carbon Emissions in Small Scale Plantation Forests

Under the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme, foresters can obtain carbon units as their forests sequester carbon. If they sell these units as they are earned, the units must be repurchased when the forest is...

Bigger is Better: Avoided Deforestation Offsets in the Face of Adverse Selection

This report was commissioned by the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development, Stanford University, Stanford CA as PESD Working Paper #102
Voluntary opt-in programs to reduce emissions in unregulated sectors or countries have spurred considerable discussion. Since any...

Optimizing Voluntary Deforestation Policy in the Face of Adverse Selection and Costly Transfers

As part of international climate change policy, voluntary opt-in programs to reduce emissions in unregulated sectors or countries have spurred considerable discussion. Since any regulator will make errors in predicting baselines, adverse selection will reduce...

Effects of poverty on deforestation: distinguishing behaviour from location

We review theory linking poverty to deforestation and examine this link using multiple observations of Costa Rica after 1960. Country-wide disaggregate data facilitate empirical analysis of poverty's location and its impact on deforestation. If where the...

What Would Have Happened? Reviewing and Improving Estimated Baselines for Tropical Forests and Sequestered Carbon

Regulations such as the Kyoto Protocol aim to limit worldwide net carbon emissions and could be quite costly for Annex 1 countries. "Carbon trading" could reduce the costs of restricting emissions and has been included...

Will Buying Tropical Forest Carbon Benefit The Poor? Evidence from Costa Rica

We review claims linking both payments for carbon and poverty to deforestation. We examine these effects empirically for Costa Rica during the late 20th century using an econometric approach that addresses the irreversibilities in deforestation....

Tropical Forest Protection, Uncertainty and Carbon Policy Integrity

Tropical forests are estimated to release approximately 1.7 PgC per year as a result of deforestation. Avoiding tropical deforestation could potentially play a significant role in carbon mitigation over the next 50 years if not...

Effects of poverty on deforestation: distinguishing behavior from location

This report was produced as ESA Working Paper No. 04-19
We summarize existing theoretical claims linking poverty to rates of deforestation and then examine this linkage empirically for Costa Rica during the 20th century using an econometric approach...
