Spring 2019 Meeting Presentation - Manchester, England
Environmental economics, Conservation of natural resources -- Economic aspects, Payments for ecosystem services
In many poor regions, the poor heavily depend on the income derived from the natural resource base. This presentation tests the forest-dependency-asset poverty hypotheses; looks at the impacts of credit constraint on forest dependency; and using machine learning approach resolves the problems of model selection uncertainty and structural parameters identification.
