Executive summary

This report covers OECD countries and a range of emerging economies which are important players on world markets. These 49 countries account for about 88% of global value added in agriculture. Their agricultural policies reflect the heterogeneity of the roles that agriculture plays in their economies. Irrespective of the structural differences across countries, they share a set of common goals that drive their agricultural policies: enabling the economic viability of the agricultural sector and rural areas more generally, producing enough and nutritious food to cater to the needs of growing and more affluent global populations, and improving the long-term environmental sustainability of food production. Policy approaches attach different weights to these shared goals.
