Oilcrops Complex. Policy Changes and Industry Measures. Annual Compendium 2017

The purpose of this compendium is to offer, in a single document, an overview of salient policy changes and related private sector measures concerning global and national markets for oilseed, oils/fats and meals in a particular year – in this case 2017.

The compendium reproduces, in tabular form, all the policy and industry news items published throughout 2017 in the FAO Oilcrops Monthly Price and Policy Update (MPPU). The main purpose is to facilitate the work of policy makers, market experts, analysts and other stakeholders by providing a short, concise overview of policy developments relevant to the oilcrops industry at the global, regional and national level.

Although every care has been taken to cover the most salient and relevant developments, the list of items presented is not exhaustive. Drawing on a variety of sources, the accounts provided concentrate on key facts, refraining from indepth analytical impact assessments.

The news items are presented in two major groups: 1) policy changes implemented (or under consideration) by national governments; and 2) voluntary industry initiatives, which include measures taken by private companies, sector associations, civil society groups and research and financial institutions.

In the tables, national policy changes are grouped by policy domains and, thereunder, by country (in alphabetical order), including reference to the month of implementation and to the product concerned. Industry measures, on the other hand, are presented by topic and, thereunder, in chronological order, with indication of the concerned country.
