The fuelwood crisis and the environment: Problems, policies and instruments

Pearson, Peter J. G. and Stevens, P. 1989. The fuelwood crisis and the environment: Problems, policies and instruments. Energy Policy 17 (2) , pp. 132-137. 10.1016/0301-4215(89)90092-X

The paper defines the Third World fuelwood crisis, in a broad development context, in terms of the implications of fuelwood scarcity and environmental damage for private and public choice. It shows how the identification of the nature of the policy problems underlying the crisis influences the objectives and instruments of energy policy. The paper concludes that to get energy policy to try to be responsible for (rather than to take account of) the wider context is likely to make policy ineffective.
