Policy

Government policies providing more than USD 500 billion to farmers every year distort markets, stifle innovation and harm the environment

The latest edition of the OECD’s annual Agricultural Policy Monitoring and Evaluation report shows that the support policies implemented by 54 countries provided on average USD 536 billion (EUR 469 billion) per year of direct support to farmers from 2017 to 2019. Half of this support came from policies that harm consumers, especially poor ones, increase the income gap between small and large farms, and reduce the competitiveness of the food industry overall.
