Food Security in the Great Lakes Region:

Reconciling Trade Liberalisation with Human Security Goals.

By: Anagha Joshi

agreement on agriculture and its impact on food security
Agreement on Agriculture and its impact on food security
  • 3 pillars: market access, export subsidies and domestic support.
  • Two key impacts on food security: (1) increases rural poverty and inequality, (2) limits the range of available measures to promote food security.
1999 fao study of impact of aoa on developing countries
1999 FAO study of impact of AoA on developing countries
  • increase in food imports and decline in food production
  • greater focus on export production and cash crops rather than sustenance farming
  • increased rural unemployment and poverty
  • Landholdings concentrated in one group, with small farmers loosing title to their lands
  • food insecurity greatly increased.

  • Effects of trade liberalisation policies:
  • loss of employment in rural communities
  • fish prices unaffordable for local communities
  • decline in quantity and quality of fish for local consumption
  • lack of access and control of the fishery by local communities (control shifted to urban enterprises).

Result has been a gross food insecurity crisis.
