POVERTY, AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT, AND THE ENVIRONMENT: EVIDENCE FROM A FRONTIER REGION OF THE PHILIPPINES

We measure impacts of agricultural intensification on environmental outcomes in the Philippines. We develop models of labor demand outside a forest zone and labor allocation and asset accumulation inside a forest zone to study household response to technical change. Using household data from 1995-2000 we estimate a series of dynamic econometric models to trace the impacts of irrigation development to changes in incomes and activities at the forest margin.
