The 2016 edition of the Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation report covers OECD member countries and emerging economies. It is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of global support to agriculture.
The new data run through 2015, and cover all OECD countries as well as Brazil, China, Indonesia, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Kazaksthan, South Africa and Viet Nam. One of the main findings is that average levels of support to agricultural producers in OECD countries and in emerging economies are converging. The OECD recommends that countries put more effort into refocusing agricultural policies to address long-term needs for improving the productivity and sustainability performance of agriculture, to help it face the multiple challenges ahead.
The analysis in this publication is based on data for the calculations of support and supplemented by the OECD Producer Support Estimate (PSE) database.
