Consumer health hazards in international food trade by T Achterbosch( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emerging risks have been defined as potential food-borne, feed-borne, or diet-related hazards that may become a risk for human health in the future. This study disentangles how emerging risks relate to international trade. It develops a basic framework for the economic analysis of emerging risks, and describes a case study on residues of antibiotics in farmed shrimp to explore the use of trade analysis methodologies for the purposes of signalling and warning. The main conclusion is that an understanding of risk creating and risk reducing behaviour is pivotal for the identification of emerging risks

Product differentiation under the WTO : an analysis of labelling and tariff or tax measures concerning farm animal welfare by D. F. J Eaton( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the possibility of giving preferential treatment to imports of meat products that meet improved standards in terms of animal welfare in production. Three specific forms of preferential treatment are considered here as possible measures for increasing levels of animal welfare in meat production in the EU and its exporting partners: labelling of products (either voluntary or compulsory), differentiated import tariffs and differentiated consumer taxes. The likely admissibility of such measures under WTO rules is assessed by means of an analysis of previous decisions by WTO dispute settlement panels. It is concluded that all of the measures analysed have a possibility of being upheld, based on a defence relying on Article XX of the GATT and perhaps also the TBT Agreement. While the incentives offered by labelling could be reinforced with differentiated tariffs or taxes, these financial instruments involve various additional complications. They could best be considered after the possibilities of regulated labelling schemes have been exhausted
Diversity of impact : agricultural trade liberalisation, poverty and development by Thom Achterbosch( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There appears to be a consensus that the interests of developing countries lie mostly liberalisation of trade in manufactures and services. Despite this insight, the WTO negotiations on agriculture have been a stumbling bloc for the developing countries. This reviews the effects of agricultural trade liberalisation on economic growth and poverty alleviation. A recurring theme is the wide diversity of effects across regions, economic activities, groups in society (urban consumers, rural producers), and households
EU-India free trade agreement : a quantitative assessment by T Achterbosch( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyses the effects of a regional trade agreement (FTA) between the EU and India, for which negotiations are underway. The study starts with abrief overview of the key insights from the existing literature on FTAs and their relationship with multilateral negotiations. The remainder of the study is devoted to analysing the impact of tariff slashes under an FTA on merchandise trade between the EU and India. Of particular interest are the implications for agricultural markets, given the tension between agricultural liberalisation and India's policy goals relating to self-sufficiency in food grains and poverty reduction. The analysis employs GTAP, a global general equilibrium model using a recent database which has 2004 as its reference year. The results suggest that India's interests in a regional trade agreement with the EU are downplayed by the fact that India's economy is not well integrated in global markets. Impacts on the EU are minor and further reduced if a Doha agreement is in place when the FTA is implemented. Results indicate the rationale for a strongly asymmetric arrangement: it would be in the interest of both partners if the EU provides large concessions to India for market access, while India maintains the bulk of current border protection. An EU - India FTA delivers little scope for achieving efficiency gains via adjustments to the pattern of international specialisation. An EU - India agreement on merchandise trade is unlikely to embody substantial preferential treatment with regard to market access. Probably, India can find more suitable FTA partners. Agriculture is a key sector for India in the consideration of equity and growth purposes of a FTA with EU
Cattle trade and the risk of importing animal diseases into the Netherlands by Thom Achterbosch( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the risk of importing animal diseases into the Netherlands through livestock trade. It presents projections of Dutch cattle imports until 2010, and applies quantitative epidemiology to estimate the related probabilities of importing three animal diseases (foot and mouth disease, bovine tuberculosis, and leptospirosis). A key result is that trade flows involving large numbers of cattle from a large number of small-scale farms poses alarming risks to veterinary health in the Netherlands

Metrics, models and foresight for European sustainable food and nutrition security: The vision of the SUSFANS project( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This paper defines the research agenda of the SUSFANS project, describes its history and its potential societal impacts. It contributes to balanced and encompassing views on how to strengthen food and nutrition security outcomes in the EU and how to improve the performance of the food system in the EU from the perspective of social, environmental and economic sustainability. The research is led by the notion that improvements in the diets of the European consumer must come from, and be supportive of, sustainable food systems. Its holistic, integrative approach builds a set of metrics, models and foresight tools, useable for navigation on sustainable food and nutrition security. This results in a coherent and supported vision on sustainable food and nutrition security in the EU and globally, and underpins a perspective on how EU policies on farming, fishing, food and nutrition could contribute to that vision with greater efficacy than today. Graphical abstract: Highlight: The SUSFANS project's research agenda, history and potential impacts are presented. It focuses on food and nutrition security and sustainable food systems in the EU. The leading notion is that both concepts come together in consumer diets. The project builds metrics, models and foresight tools useable in policy support. Its holistic and integrative approach results in a coherent and supported vision
