Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2011

OECD Countries and Emerging Economies

image of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2011

For the first time, the Monitoring and Evaluation report of agricultural policies covers OECD member countries (including the new members who joined during 2010 – Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia) and selected key emerging economies: Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine.

This edition shows that, after an increase in 2009, producer support in the OECD area declined in 2010, confirming the downward trend in support to farmers. The trend in emerging economies shows some increase in the level of support, although it stays well below the OECD average.

This report is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture and is complemented by individual chapters on agricultural policy developments in all countries covered in the report.

Developments in Agricultural Policy and Support

The key economic and market developments which provide the framework for the implementation of agricultural policies and related support to farming sector are analysed in the first part of this chapter. Highlights are then presented of the main recent changes and new initiatives in agricultural policies in 2009-10 in OECD countries and key emerging economies covered in this report: Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. Finally, the developments in the estimated support (using the OECD PSE methodology) are evaluated in terms of its level, composition and changes over time in OECD countries and the emerging economies included in the report.
