Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2019

image of Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation 2019

This annual report monitors and evaluates agricultural policies spanning all 6 continents, including the 36 OECD countries, the 5 non-OECD EU Member States, and 12 emerging economies. It is a unique source of up-to date estimates of support to agriculture using a comprehensive system of measuring and classifying support to agriculture – the Producer and Consumer Support Estimates (PSEs and CSEs), the General Services Support Estimate (GSSE) and related indicators – which provide insight into the increasingly complex nature of agricultural policy and serve as a basis for OECD’s agricultural policy monitoring and evaluation. Comprehensive country chapters and the Statistical Annex containing detailed background tables with indicators of agricultural support are available in electronic form at the publication website.

Norway’s progress in reducing support levels has been modest; its farming sector continues to receive one of the highest levels of support in the OECD area. Market price support (MPS), mainly due to border protection, still remains the main component of support to producers, and its share in total support to farms (PSE) has been reduced by only 1 percentage point between 1986-88 and 2016-18. While the share of potentially most production and trade distorting support has declined, it still represented most of the support in recent years.
