Assessing the Role of Group Heterogeneity in Community Forest Concessions in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve
ABSTRACT. We use land use data from Guatemala to estimate the impact of a community forest concession policy on avoided deforestation when accounting for group heterogeneity. Our analysis includes communities with significant forestry experience, along with communities comprising recent settlers with primarily agricultural backgrounds. Employing a matched difference-in-differences approach, we compare deforestation in community concessions relative to a matched control area. We find the concession policy reduced deforestation throughout the study region, with the most significant effects in...
Forests can mitigate greenhouse gases by storing carbon (SEQU) and supplying woody biomass for burning in power plants with CCS (WBCCS). The paper uses GTM to understand the global dynamics of forests and WITCH to determine the most cost-effective mitigation methods to limit long-term radiative forcing. The analysis finds that both SEQU and WBCCS are effective but the most effective choice is to use them together. WBCCS + SEQU accounts for 23–28% of all mitigation. SEQU initially dominates while carbon prices are low while WBCCS becomes more important later with especially high carbon prices...

One goal of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Foods and Veterinary Medicine Program’s 13 Strategic Plan for 2016-2025 is to foster an environment to promote healthy food choices. Claims 14 appearing on food labels represent one aspect of this environment. The FDA has requested 15 interested parties to provide information about consumer understanding of the term “healthy,” an 16 implied nutrient content claim of great interest among consumers and food manufacturers. The 17 purpose of this study is to provide contemporary insights about U.S. consumer attitudes toward 18 regulating the...
