The Impact of Foreign Aid on Local Deforestation

Nicklas Nordfors

In collaboration with the Master’s Programme at the Department of Economics, Stockholm University, the EBA regularly engages as Master’s thesis co-supervisors. A successfully graded thesis may be published as an EBA Working Paper.

The aim of the thesis is to answer the question: does foreign aid have an impact on local environmental degradation, specifically deforestation, in recipient countries?
