There is currently great concern among the public in general, and consumers in particular, about the quality of the environment in relation to agriculture. Such concerns focus on issues such as pollution from agriculture, the quality of landscapes, animal welfare and food safety. As a result, many countries have developed a range of standards, codes of good practice and other policy measures.

This book reviews these issues and relates them to agricultural trade and competition. Features include chapters on world trade and trade liberalization as well as individual chapters on the situation in the European Union, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and developing countries.
