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
