about this item

Over the years many experts have observed that the Agreement on Agriculture (AoA) is beset with asymmetries and imbalances that adversely affect the interests of a large number of developing countries. This book examines the public stockholding policy of selected developing countries from the perspective of WTO rules and assesses whether the provisions of the AoA could hamper these countries’ efforts to address the challenges of food security. Further, it provides in-depth analyses of food security policy of selected countries under the WTO regime and highlights the need to amend the provisions of the Agreement on Agriculture (AoA) to make WTO just and fair for the millions of people suffering from hunger and malnutrition in developing and least developed countries. The findings of this study will greatly benefit policymakers, civil society, farmers groups, researchers, students and academics interested in issues related to the WTO, agriculture and food security.
