GTAP in the News

Purdue economists warn palm oil solutions may have unintended consequences

The growth of palm oil, the most-consumed vegetable oil in the world, has been fueled by expansion of palm plantings in Malaysia and Indonesia that have contributed to massive deforestation in those countries. The carbon and biodiversity losses there have spurred the European Union and others to call for measures to slow palm oil sales and limit forest losses.

Purdue University economists warn that global measures to decrease palm oil production will have repercussions in Malaysia and Indonesia that will affect the rest of the world. Their study modeling likely policy outcomes, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that these impacts could negate any forest savings and damage Malaysian and Indonesian economies.
