Making International Food Safety Rules Serve the Interests of the Poor Developing Country Livestock Producer
This policy brief is based on Working Paper No. 25.
Many developing country advocates worry that international food safety rules have the potential to present new barriers to developing country food exports. It is clear that today the interests of poor developing country producers of livestock food products are not directly represented in international food safety rule-making. Indirectly, their interests may be represented by their own governments but developing country participation in relevant rule-making activity is limited. Additionally, developing country government interests will not necessarily be the same as those of their own poor producers.
This briefing outlines the strategic entry points to making international rule-making more fair to developing country livestock producers.
