Cereal Policies Review 1998-99

Year of publication2000
AbstractThe 1998-99 edition of the Cereal Policies Review is the eighth in the annual series on recent developments in national cereal policies and other issues of direct or indirect relevance with regional or global implications for cereals. The series was first launched in 1990-91 in response to the considerable interest in developments in cereal policies and their implications at both the national and international level. In particular, we hope that the information provided will be of use to policy makers, researchers and others concerned with the more general issues of agricultural development and food security. The first chapter of this Review consists of a survey of developments in national cereal policies during the past year, based on information available to FAO. The discussion is organised under various sections, each examining the main change in policies affecting production, consumption, marketing and stocking, and trade. The information was collected from a variety of sources; including FAO policy questionnaires, news agencies, the Internet, government and FAO reports.
