It is frequently asserted that agricultural liberalization by the United States, European Union, and other rich countries is the key to making the global trade negotiations launched in Doha, Qatar, in 2001 a "development round." Agricultural market liberalization is essential in achieving a successful Doha Round agreement because these are the most protected markets remaining in most rich countries. But the implications for developing countries, especially the poorest, are more complex than the current debate suggests. This volume examines the structure of agricultural support in rich countries and explores the challenges as well as opportunities that developing countries might face if the Doha Round succeeds in reforming OECD agriculture policies.
