OECD Countries and Emerging Economies

image of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2013

This Monitoring and Evaluation report of agricultural policies covers OECD member countries and a range of emerging economies which are key players on agro-food markets: Brazil, China, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. This edition shows that after a historical low reached in 2011 the support increased slightly in 2012. In the longer term perspective the OECD estimations of support confirm the downward trend in support to farmers, while in some emerging economies the support is increasing although from a lower base.

This report is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture in the OECD area and is complemented by individual chapters on agricultural policy developments in OECD countries and selected emerging economies.

Executive summary

This report monitors and evaluates agricultural policy in OECD member countries (and the EU as a whole) and in an increasing range of emerging economies that are major players in food and agriculture markets: Brazil, China, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. The 47 countries covered by this report account for almost 80% of global agricultural value added; they are also diverse in their levels of development, the characteristics of their agricultural sectors, and their choice of policy instruments and levels of policy support. But their policy interests have a great deal in common: ensuring a reliable supply of safe, nutritious and affordable food, reasonable incomes for farms and farm households, a productive and competitive food and agriculture sector, and sustainable use of natural resources.
