dc.description.abstractThe 'deforestation problem' in Brazil consists of a variety of interrelated issues, of which this paper identifies aregional, sectoral and macroeconomic dimension. Using a regionally and sectorally disaggregated generalequilibrium model of Brazil, it is shown that macroeconomic reform is complementary to conservationpolicies. Therefore, if not for other reasons, macroeconomic reform is urgently needed to provide an adequateframework for microeconomic conservation policies to be effective. The analysis also shows that regional landtaxes in the Amazon outperform the reduction of fiscal incentives for agriculture, both with regards toecological effectiveness and efficiency. Finally, the results do not support claims for compensation payments.-
