"The economic effects of soil erosion in Africa: a 2050 analysis"
by Sartori, Martina, Emanuele Ferrari and Antti Simola


Abstract
This paper investigates the economic impacts of soil erosion on the African continent in 2050. Soil erosion rates are converted into land productivity losses and fed the MAGNET CGE model.
Preliminary results suggest that declining productivity in agriculture arising from the deterioration of the land factor will have a negative and unevenly distributed economic impact on the African economies. The most affected countries will be Nigeria and those located in the central-eastern region.
