Agricultural policies and support

Achieving Ukraine's Agricultural Potential: Stimulating Agricultural Growth and Improving Rural Life - September 2004

 

This study provides a review of the food and agricultural sector in Ukraine and was prepared as a joint undertaking of the World Bank, the OECD and the Government of Ukraine. The study outlines a forward-looking policy agenda, assesses the development and current status of agricultural policies and institutions and presents for the first time internationally comparable estimates of support to the Ukrainian agricultural sector based on Producer and Consumer Support Estimates (PSE/CSE) developed by OECD. Going beyond the boundaries of the agricultural sector, the report also encompasses the entire rural space surrounding agriculture, including rural physical and social infrastructure and the extent of rural poverty. The Executive Summary highlights policy recommendations for Ukrainian policy-makers, while the individual chapters provide technical analysis on key policy issues.
