Deforestation and forest conservation: effects on farm income in Ecuador

Ojeda Luna, Tatiana; Zhunusova, Eliza GND; Fischer, Richard GND; Günter, Sven GND; Dieter, Matthias GND

Along the Northwest Coast of Ecuador deforestation is high, timber markets dominate the economy and provide short term income for local farmers. In such a context, forest conservation areas reduce forest income. Lessons can be learned for the Central Amazon where forests are still abundant and conservation hardly affects farm income.
