Regional Economic and Energy Prospects in the Developing Countries: Application of the PREDESS Model

Bertrand Lepinoy

Year: 1988
Volume: Volume 9
Number: Number 2

Abstract:
The PREDESS model (Previsions Regionales de l'Economie et de la Demande d'Energie par Source et par Secteur) analyzes the economies of the developing countries by region and sector. It integrates the dissymmetry of the world economy into the productive process, with the industrialized countries acting as the traditional driving force. An energy model, also constructed by region and sector, is linked to the world economic model. It includes both commercial and traditional energy sources and stresses their development and substitution possibilities. The model pays special attention to the problems of traditional energy sources (such as deforestation) and analyzes the consequences of replacing traditional with commercial sources.



Traditional Energy Programs and the Theory of Open Access Forest Resources

Harry R. Clarke and Ram M. Shrestha

Year: 1989
Volume: Volume 10
Number: Number 3
DOI: 10.5547/ISSN0195-6574-EJ-Vol10-No3-9
View Abstract

Abstract:
This paper analyzes implications of open access forestry for traditional energy programs in LDC's. The role of improved woods loves, charcoal kilns, forest-access and biogas programs is examined. A key finding is that, with sufficient elasticity in fuelwood demands, traditional energy programs may reduce long-run fuel wood supply stocks.



Traditional Energy Programs with an Open Access Forest Resource: Policy Implications

Hany R Clarke and Ram M. Shrestha

Year: 1989
Volume: Volume 10
Number: Number 4
DOI: 10.5547/ISSN0195-6574-EJ-Vol10-No4-4
View Abstract

Abstract:
Policies for managing a forest subject to open access exploitation are discussed from the viewpoint of encouraging greater efficiency in the use of woodfuels. The usefulness of market and non-market policy options formanagingforestresources is shown to depend on whether fuelwood collection is the major cause of deforestation or not and, if so, whether fuelwood collection procedures have a market valuation.
