Skogbrann i Amazonas

The Amazon Barbecue

Fires in the Brazilian Amazon are an important driver of forest degradation, doubling biodiversity losses from deforestation. Fires have burned an area equivalent to half of the whole forest over the

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".
