Dataset Open Access
This dataset is an update of Pendrill et al. (2020) and 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 2005-2018. The data is derived 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 two different trade models: a physical trade model and a multi-regional input-output model. The model and original results are presented in Pendrill et al. (2019a, b).
