Endangered: Small Rice Farmers − The Impact of the Agreement on Agriculture on Small Rice Farmers in the Philippines


Proponents of liberalisation argue that free trade offers opportunities for farmers in developing countries to raise their incomes through exports. However, small farmers are experiencing the opposite. This publication series reports on the real impact of trade liberalization to small farmers, and how he Agreement on Agriculture (AoA) of the World Trade Organization (WTO) only ensured an exploitative rice market system where the traders, rice millers and exporters dominate and reap the benefits from rice exports . The series was published during the time the WTO is pushing for the resumption of the stalled Doha Round of trade talks. Featured in this title are the small farmers of Philippines.
