past 15 years, and produce yearly carbon emissions equivalent to 5% of the global amount.Federico Cammelli analyzes micro-level causes of forest fires in the Brazilian Amazon, and the impact of
policies and droughts on smallholders’ decisions to use and control fires in his PhD Thesis ”Persistent miscoordination: an economics of Amazon fires".
