How can government policies move towards increasing agricultural innovation and improving productivity? This OECD conference shared case studies and ideas from Europe, China, United States, India, Africa, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand.
Data on government support to agriculture in the OECD area (including European Union) and other major economies, measured by indicators including the Producer Support Estimate (PSE) and Consumer Support Estimate.
Fisheries reform is driven by economic forces, not environmental crisis. Policy makers must involve all stakeholders in supporting and sustaining reforms, as seen in these case studies of Iceland, Korea, Mexico, Norway and New Zealand.
Farm risk management policy in New Zealand centres on natural disaster assistance and preventing pest and disease incursions. New Zealand should strengthen a 'multi-activity enterprise' view of farming, reduce uncertainty about future environmental regulations and improve knowledge on risks.
