Abstract: "In this paper we assess the institutional and environmental impacts of forest decentralization in Bolivia, Kenya, Mexico, and Uganda. Although decentralization is often described as if it were a single policy intervention, many different types of reforms have been described as decentralization. We develop theories of institutional impacts based upon the specific decentralization reforms within the context of each country, and then argue that decentralization impacts are moderated by a country-specific control variables. Using data from the International Forestry Resources and Institutions Program, we estimated the effects of forest decentralization on local forest investments, rulemaking, wealth inequality, and forest conditions."
