Impact of EU agricultural policy on developing countries: A Uganda case study

Ole Boysen, Hans Jensen () and Alan Matthews ()

The Institute for International Integration Studies Discussion Paper Series from IIIS

Abstract: Despite substantial reforms, the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is still criticised for its detrimental effects on developing countries. This paper provides updated evidence on the impact of the CAP on one developing country, Uganda. It goes beyond estimating macro-level economic effects by analysing the impacts on poverty. The policy simulation results show that eliminating EU agricultural support would have marginal but nonetheless positive impacts on the Ugandan economy and its poverty indicators. From the perspective of the EU's commitment to policy coherence for development, this supports the view that further reducing EU agricultural support would be positive for development.
