The Forest Law and the loss of natural habitat in the Chaco Salteño

Graziano Ceddia and Elena Zepharovich published new research, showing the impact of land titling to IPs and the Forest Law in the province of Salta on the loss of natural habitat in the Chaco Salteño. Through statistical analysis they show that  the approval of the Forest Law in Salta has been ineffective at slowing down the loss of natural habitat and is associated with the emergence of Jevons paradox via the increase in agricultural productivity. Moreover, this new institutional context appears to have increased the pressures on IPs land and encouraged preventive clearing on these lands.
