Traditional Energy Programs and the Theory of Open Access Forest Resources

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.
