Green Economic on the forest system impact with emphasis on the Central America and the Caribbean livestock production

The research was focused on measuring the level of biomass carbon productivity in the Central American countries. To make these measurements we used the IPCC Tier 1 method to determine annual increase carbon storage in biomass carbon loss by wood removals and carbon loss by burning fuel extraction and to measure its impact on productivity forest approach was used for data analysis enclosures (DEA), estimating Malmquist indices. The growth rate of total factor productivity forest (PTFF) was 0.03% on average in all countries, it shows that El Salvador recorded a growth rate of 1%, 0.04% Belize, Guatemala and Nicaragua, 0.03 % Change in Costa Rica and Honduras, 0.01%, while Cuba and Panama were indifferent in the growth rate.
