The paper describes the development of a methodological tool for classification and analysis of agricultural and rural development policies. The tool called APM (Agri-Policy Measures template) compiles a comprehensive database of measures, allowing for the international comparison of agricultural policies. Uniform classification of agricultural policy measures has all the characteristics of internationally-recognized classifications (OECD, EU, EAA). The method was applied in the Western Balkan countries (WBs) in order to provide an analysis of the development and current situation in agriculture and agricultural policy in Western Balkan countries (WBs) in relation to the EU accession process.
