Sustainable Forest Management Crisis and Bribery in Cameroon: An Empirical Investigation of the Mookherjee and P'ng Model

Siméon Maxime Bikoué


The author tries to use the Mookherjee and P'ng model to analyze bribery as one of the key explanatory variables for the sustainable forest management crisis in Cameroon. The analysis of field data shows that the public administration of forest in this country does not have the incentive and dissuasive instruments recommended by the anti-bribery model. The author therefore recommends that the Administration should use these instruments in an attempt to remedy the crisis.
