Overview

This study produced an objective, unbiased comparison of the support provided to agricultural producers in different countries around the world. The comparative analysis assessed the level of the support provided, but particularly also its nature. Different agricultural policy instruments were categorised and an evaluation was made of the extent to which the measures are achieving their desired objectives.
