Assistant Professor Christoph Nolte has co-authored “Decentralized Land Use Zoning Reduces Large-scale Deforestation in a Major Agricultural Frontier” in Ecological Economics. “Political economic theory and evidence suggests that national governments are more likely than subnational governments in agricultural frontiers to adopt restrictive forest conservation policies, due to differences in political constituencies and capacity,” Dr. Nolte and his colleagues write. “We examine the validity of this claim using an impact study of provincial-level land use planning in Argentina’s main deforestation frontier, the Dry Chaco.”
