The use of export restrictions in the agricultural sector increased noticeably between 2007 and 2011, a time when the world economy was hit by the financial crisis and the prices of many agricultural commodities were rising and volatile. This volume brings together different strands of analysis carried out by OECD since 2009 on the use of export restrictions in the trade of raw materials.

This report analyses policies along the agricultural supply chain, in particular support measures for fertilisers and for biofuels. It uses the OECD Fertiliser and Biofuel Support Policies Database that covers polices in 48 countries (including the EU and its Members) and assesses the market effects of these policies with a computable general equilibrium model, MAGNET.


The use of antimicrobials in livestock production provides a basis for improving animal health and productivity. However, there is increasing concern about levels of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria. This report examines antimicrobial usage in livestock and its impact on public health and the food economy.


An integral component of a green growth strategy is a highly-reliable set of measurement tools and indicators to evaluate the effectiveness of policies and to gauge progress in shifting economic activity onto a greener path. These tools and indicators must also be embedded in a conceptual framework and selected according to a clearly-specified set of criteria. This report is a first step towards developing such a framework.
