The distributional structure of green box subsidies in the European Union and France

Abstract : This book chapter aims to analyse domestic subsidies for European and French agriculture, specifically green box subsidies. According to the Uruguay Rounf Agricultural Agreement (URAA), World trade organization (WTO) Member States may synchronise their agricultural subsidies since these are not considered to introduce distortions in production and trade (green box). This book chapter is divided into five parts as follows. Part 1 consists of a review of the definitions of the three boxes (amber, blue and green) and EU notifications to the WTO regarding these three boxes for the period 1995-96 to 2003-04 (no notifications have been made since then). Using budgetary data from the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (EAGGF) and data on national agricultural subsidies, Part 2 attempts to put a figure on the total amount of green box subsidies made within the different EU Member States (this was done where EU notification reports to the WTO did not provide a breakdown by country). Using budgetary data and categories used by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Part 3 contains an analysis of the changes in green box budgetary subsidies in France. Using data from the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN), part 4 attempts to demonstrate the rôle of direct green box aid for European agricultural holdings. Part 5, using the same FADN data, concentrates specifically on French farm holdings (using a simulation of CAP reform and decoupling).
