L'évaluation des ressources naturelles : le cas de la forêt classée de Tiogo au Burkina Faso
Forest provides a wide range of environmental goods and services among which, biodiversity or consumption goods: they are know as forest amenities and constitute public goods. So, the valuing of forest cannot be directly based on market prices but is estimated using revealed preference methods. The contingent valuation method is used to estimate the values of the Tiogo forest in Burkina Faso using dataset from a survey of 300 rural households. The monthly average household willingness to pay for getting a plot in the forest is 620 F CFA while it reaches only 487 FCFA for protecting it. The results indicate that contingent valuation can be successfully applied to rural households in developing countries. They provide information about benefits from forest use. The econometric analysis identifies the determinants of the willingness to pay.
