dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a numerical general equilibrium assessment of policies to reduce tropicaldeforestation in Cameroon. Market failure - mainly in the form of national and internationalexternalities - and policy failures - such as highly distorted product markets - are identified as majorsources of overexploitation. The ecological effects of deforestation control are shown to dependcrucially upon its impact on land use patterns whereas its efficiency effects hinge on the manner inwhich a specified set-aside target is achieved. If the international community wants to ensure a higherlevel of protection of these forests, and to do so within a market-based system, the provision ofconditional financial resources is necessary.-
