Abstract

Agriculture is heavily subsidized in most of the OECD countries. On the other hand, environmental externalities occur because of protection related pollution. In this study the structure of agricultural protection in the OECD countries was examined in a chronological and comparative perspective. In addition, the policy-environment interaction was scrutinized in order to better understand environmental implications of agricultural policies in the era of globalization. Evidence was found for international trade and environmental interaction in some of the OECD countries such that production and technological impact appear to be a prominent factor in environmental pollution.
