Daniel Leguia has researched the opportunity costs of forest conservation within the margins of three roads in the Amazon region of Bolivia. The results are expressed in terms of cost per ton of carbon dioxide emissions avoided through forest conservation. This data can be used for the design of a REDD project or any financial incentive for conservation. Daniel is an economist graduate from Catholic University in La Paz, Bolivia. This project was supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
