Special Issue "Trade Policy and Macroeconomic Impacts on Agricultural Sustainability"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: international agricultural trade; macroeconomic policies and agriculture; commodity price dynamics
This special issue investigates the nexus of trade and macroeconomic policies relating to agricultural sustainability. Economic policies must be designed to positively impact the globally relevant issues of climate change, water scarcity, food insecurity, poverty alleviation, environmental degradation, and sustainability of resources (water, soil, and nitrogen fertilizer). Sustainability is a particularly crucial factor in policy formulation and analysis while conflicting economic, environmental, and social objectives move toward a resolution. We welcome manuscripts investigating agricultural sustainability as it relates to: the interaction of agricultural trade and environmental policies, the impacts of the liberalization of specific agricultural trade, the environmentally friendly technology transfer in agriculture, free trade agreements, exchange rate changes, and biofuel policies. These polices have important effects on the trade and prices of environmentally sensitive goods. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to rigorous peer review and streamlined for rapid, widespread dissemination of the results.
