Agricultural policy and trade reform; potential effects at global, national, and household levels.



159 pages




Carried out by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development's Directorate for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, this report attempts to quantify the likely national, sectoral, and household distributional consequences of a widespread and simultaneous reduction in agricultural trade protection and domestic support. The study is divided into two different sections that examine implications for global commodity markets, national economic welfare, and sectoral terms of trade for a range of individual countries and regions based on simulations with a variant of the Global Trade Analysis Project model and then apply these projected aggregate impacts down to the household level for Brazil, Italy, Malawi, Mexico, and the United States.
