''The effects of migrant remittances on deforestation in the Congo basin''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.4 )
This study analyses the manner in which migrant remittances affect the rate of deforestation in the Congo basin. Two main results are revealed by our econometric analysis. Firstly, the share of migrant remittances received in the GDP increases the rate of deforestation for the set of countries considered. Secondly, the observed profile of the GDP per capita is contrary to the hypothesis of the Kuznets Environmental Curve.
Keywords: Migrant remittances; deforestation; Congo basin
