Abstract

This publication concerns developing countries and agricultural trade. It aims to provide guidance on ways to make trade policy more pro-poor. It addresses four key questions: Does international trade liberalization in agriculture benefit poor countries? Does liberalized trade stimulate growth in the agricultural sector, and what are the developmental impacts – on poverty, livelihoods, gender, and the environment? Is there coherence between European Union (EU) trade and development policies? How can developing countries be more effectively integrated into the world economy, participate more fully in trade, and how could the results benefit the poor?
