Blog » End-Of-Conflict Deforestation – Evidence From Colombian’s Peace Agreement
This paper studies the eﬀect of the recent peace negotiation between the government and the FARC insurgency on Colombia’s forest cover. Using yearly deforestation data from satellite images and a diﬀerence-in-diﬀerences identiﬁcation strategy, the paper shows that areas controlled by FARC prior to the declaration of a permanent ceaseﬁre experienced a diﬀerential increase in deforestation after the start of the ceaseﬁre.
