The safe programme 2

The SAFE programme 2

Original aim was to examine:

The setting and implementation of new health and safety-related standards for agro-food products, as well as new social, labour and environmental standards – with a focus on public and private standards required for exporting to the EU;

The levels of compliance with new standards by producers and exporters in Africa, costs and benefits, and pre-conditions and consequences (including distributional ones) of compliance and non-compliance.
