Deforestation risk embodied in production and consumption of agricultural and forestry commodities 2005-2017

Pendrill, Florence; Persson, U. Martin; Kastner, Thomas

This dataset contains estimates of tropical deforestation embodied in the production, exports, imports and consumption of agricultural and forestry commodities by country, year, and commodity, in the time period 2005-2017. The data is an update on the results presented in Pendrill et al. (2019a, b), using a land-balance model to attribute deforestation across 135 countries in the tropics to expansion of cropland, pastures and forest plantation and the commodities produced on this land, and tracing these commodities to consumption using a physical trade model.
