[2017-19]Does the expansion of biofuels encroach on the forest? Derya KELES, Johanna CHOUMERT, Pascale COMBES MOTEL, Eric Nazindigouba KERE

In this article, we explore the role of biofuel production on deforestation in developing and emerging countries. Since the 2000s biofuel production has been rapidly developing to address issues of economic development, energy poverty and reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, the sustainability of biofuels is being challenged in recent research, particularly at the […]

We completed a retrospective multivariate panel study to evaluate the effect of Gavi Vaccine Alliance grants on vaccine-preventable disease (VPD) postneonatal mortality.

Quelle(s) Afrique(s) demain?

Préface de Jean-Pierre RAFFARIN – Avant-propos de Patrick GUILLAUMONT  « On ne sort de l’ambiguité qu’à son détriment », aimait dire François Mitterrand. Le défi de l’Afrique au XXIe siècle est de faire mentir cet aphorisme. Car elle ne peut plus se permettre le charme discret de l’ambiguité, d’être à la fois le continent à la croissance la […]

Dynamic fuel price pass-through: Evidence from a new global retail fuel price database Roland Kangni KPODAR, Chadi ABDALLAH

We estimate the dynamic effects of crude oil price shocks on retail fuel prices, the pass-through, using the local projection approach of Jordà (2005). Using a novel monthly dataset of retail fuel prices in 162 countries over the period from 2000:1 to 2014:12, we find that: (i) retail gasoline prices respond positively to crude oil […]
