Developed Country Cotton Subsidies and Developing Countries: Unravelling the Impacts on Africa

Briefing/policy papers

This study, through a careful examination of the nature of the cotton market, suggests that under certain assumptions subsidies by smaller subsidisers (such as the EU) may be disproportionately harmful to some suppliers, notably to West and Central African countries. This is especially damaging to them since they have the potential to increase supply.
