Executive summary

The present report is the 30th in the series of OECD reports that monitor and evaluate agricultural policies across countries. It includes the 35 OECD countries as well as the six non-OECD EU member states and eleven emerging and developing economies; overall the 52 countries covered by this report account for about two-thirds of global agricultural value added. While agricultural sectors differ across the countries covered in terms of their size, nature and importance to their overall economies, all face a number of common challenges and opportunities related to meeting future market demand. Policy packages need to be both effective and efficient to enable the sector to develop its full potential and achieve key public objectives. Countries share a number of goals for the sector: ensuring food and nutrition security; enabling producers to improve their living standards by operating in an open and transparent global trading system; promoting sustainable productivity growth and resource use; mitigation of and adaptation to climate change; building resilience to different risks; the provision of public goods and ecosystem services; and contributing to inclusive growth and development. They also have identified the need for an integrated approach to agriculture and food policies that is coherent with economy-wide policies.
