World Agricultural Trade Reform and the WTO Doha Development Round: Analysis of the Impact on EU and Irish Agriculture

This study is presented as a contribution to the debate surrounding the ongoing World Trade Organisation (WTO) agriculture negotiations. The study presents a baseline (status quo) view of the agriculture sector over the next ten years and contrasts this with a number of hypothetical WTO reform scenarios. FAPRI-Ireland has no policy advocacy role and the format of these scenarios should not be inferred as an expectation, or recommendation, in relation to the eventual outcome of the WTO negotiations. The report is produced by staff at the Rural Economy Research Centre, Teagasc, in conjunction with our partners in the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri in the USA.
