The economic benefit of stopping deforestation

The economic benefit of stopping deforestation

Based on a research on the economic valuation of the Leuser National Park on Sumatra, Indonesa, this visualization shows the economic value of the Leuser Ecosystem for 3 scenarios: selective-use (logging, but replanting trees), deforestation (which is the current trend) and conservation (no logging at all). The results are broken down into 3 groups: regions, industrial sectors and stakeholders. See a live demo here
