Greater access to rich countries’ markets reduces poverty

IFPRI’s agricultural trade liberalization work on the WTO’s Doha Negotiations has resulted in approximately 70 publications since 2004. IFPRI ex-ante impact assessment discussion paper #28 in 2008 by external evaluator Joanna Hewitt (“Impact Evaluation of Research by the International Food Policy Research Institute on Agricultural Trade Liberalization, Developing Countries, and WTO’s Doha Negotiations”) provides a list of these publications and details the outcomes of the research. This summary focuses on the key research outcome and the key methodological outcome (for which relevant evidence can be found in the Hewitt paper) and an additional outcome developed after the ex-post study was published.
