About this book

This work asks what globalization means for environmental quality and the use of natural resources in developing economies. The authors develop theoretical models that trace the effects of trade and trade liberalization on sectoral resource allocation, factor returns, income and welfare, as well as incentives to clear forest and degrade agricultural land. The models reflect important developing economy features including spacial distinctions between uplands and lowlands, open-access forest resources and the special features of domestic food products. The authors also analyse representative economy submodels, explore empirical cases based on applied general equilibrium models of Asian economies, and examine welfare and environmental implications of migration, trade liberalization and development policy.

Contents

Development-environment interactions; analytical approaches to the trade-environment relationship; growth and the environment in developing Asian economies; deforestation and upland land degradation in an open economy-empirical and analytical foundations; applied general equilibrium models and methods; protection, food policy and the environment in the Philippines; development policy and the environment in Sri Lanka; environmental effects of investment and trade policy reform during Thailand's economic "miracle".
