World Bank policy research report

SD418

In many developing countries, deforestation is causing environmental damage while increasing available farmland and generating rural income and employment. This report from the World Bank considers the apparent conflict between poverty reduction and environmental protection in tropical forests and attempts to identify "win-win" policies that support both. Particular attention is paid to the potential opportunities offered by global carbon finance.
