food, agriculture, and the environment discussion paper
2020 discussion paper

This discussion paper focuses on the food economy of Russia, to see what effect reforms are likely to have on Russia's ability to produce food and feed its people in the next decade (the forecasts extend only to 2005 because longer-term projections are difficult in this volatile economic environment). Scenarios for consumption and production of important food groups are presented. .
