Projected gains (losses) for countries under Doha scenario for agriculture
IAASTD/Ketill Berger, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Agricultural trade offers opportunities for developing countries to benefit from larger scale production for global markets, acquire some commodities cheaper than would be possible through domestic production, and gain access to new forms of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology (AKST) and equipment (e.g. fertilizers, HYV seeds, pump sets, etc.). Projections for the Doha round of trade negotitations show, though, that for the agricultural sector, the developed countries will be the winners, and their often protectionist agricutural policies will render the poorest countries losers.
