LEAF Lunchtime Lecture: “Empirical and spatial analysis of tradable permits in private forest conservation: a case study in the Brazilian Amazon”

  • Date:
  • Location: 12 - 1 pm, Worsley Building (9.57), University of Leeds

For our final LEAF Lunchtime Lecture of 2017/2018, Marta Giannichi from the School of Geography will be talking about her work with landowners in Brazil.

A major challenge to reduce forest loss in the tropics is to incentivise conservation on private land in agricultural settings. Engaging private landowners in conservation schemes is particularly important along deforestation frontiers.

This talk presents a case study identifying different viewpoints of sellers and buyers of an emerging forest certificate trading scheme in Brazil and quantify the compatibility of their views to examine potential barriers to trade.

Join us from 12 – 1 pm – everyone is welcome!
