Abstract

The rise of global value chains (GVCs) has increased competition in global markets because of the constantly changing critical success factors which result in shifting comparative advantages. In such a context, countries are increasingly interested in assessing their relative competitiveness in...

Abstract

The thermal degradation of the wood of two commercially used eucalyptus species from South Africa, namely Eucalyptus dunnii and Eucalyptus macarthurii was studied. Both are valuable pulpwood species and the financial loss due to wildfires each year is significant. This study aimed to understand how ...

Abstract

Wild edible fruits (WEFs) are important non-timber forest products (NTFP) that are commonly grouped with other wild foods or NTFPs in general. We hypothesize that WEFs, other wild foods, and non-food NTFPs contribute in different ways to household economies. Using data collected through a survey of ...

Abstract

To draw up logging plans for African forests, it is essential to know at what age the trees can be felled, whether for timber from dense humid forests or for fuelwood from savannah areas. However, attempts are rarely made to monitor tree growth over a number of years. Could growth rings be used to...

Abstract

Although many studies have examined the contributions of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) to rural livelihoods, relatively few consider the context in which income shares are shaped. A core one is the local agro-ecological potential because it moulds possible land use options and the potential...

Abstract

We develop a model of deforestation using a real option on agricultural land conversion and establish an important link between agricultural commodity price volatility and forest loss. Higher price volatility of staple commodities increases incentives to delay land conversion and is associated with ...

Abstract

As the US and much of Europe pursue aggressive plans to decarbonize, in part by replacing coal-fired power stations with cleaner sources, the global focus has shifted to coal in emerging economies. Several studies have projected a boom in new coal power generation in Africa, more than 30 GW (GW) of ...
