At a macroeconomic level, the research investigates the inter-linkages between adjustment and stabilization on the one hand and environmental policies on the other. At the sectoral level, the study analyses the changing institutional and regulatory context within which environmental management in the forestry sector occurs. At the field level, the study includes field surveys to assess the impact of the crisis on land-clearing decisions of small farmers and commercial concession holders.

Research was supported by the MacArthur Foundation (Grant #9855536), and was done in collaboration with the Centre for International Forestry Research(CIFOR).
