Partial decoupling

Considerable conceptual and empirical work has been undertaken concerning decoupling of agricultural support, in particular by the OECD (for example see OECD, 2001, 2005a, 2005b, 2006; Goodwin and Mishra, 2002, 2003, 2005; Rude, 2006; Bhaskar and Beghin, 2009). In addition, a number of modelling and other empirical studies have been undertaken at EU and member state level concerning various aspects of the 2003 CAP reform (OECD, 2003; Sckokai and Moro, 2006; and the IDEMA project3). However, relatively little work has been undertaken examining the possible impacts of the decision to implement partial rather than full decoupling. When the issue of decoupling was raised during the Mid-Term Review of the Agenda 2000 reform, analysis was undertaken of its likely impact and also the potential implications of the watering- down of the full decoupling proposals to allow partial decoupling (for example, Renwick et al., 2003 ). Though conceptual in nature, this work highlighted that, when compared with a number of options for partial decoupling, full decoupling was the preferred policy in terms of economic efficiency.
