Reforming Agricultural Trade for Developing Countries, 1
Developing countries have much greater leverage in the Doha Round negotiations, due at least in part to their large and growing share of world trade. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen whether this influence will be translated into a final agreement that is truly more development-friendly. This volume takes up select issues of importance to developing countries, including the implications of the concept of the "multifunctionality" of agriculture, the impact on market access of sanitary and phytosanitary regulations, the role of special and differential treatment for developing countries in the negotiations, and what lessons can be learned from previous trade reform experiences.
