The Overseas Development Institute and LMC International will appear before the House of Lords Agriculture, Fisheries, Environment and Energy EU Sub-Committee, in the first evidence session of their short follow-up inquiry into the EU Sugar Regime.
At 11.00am, Wednesday 13 June, Committee Room 3A, Palace of Westminster
- Sheila Page, Senior Research Associate, Overseas Development Institute
- Anna Locke, Head of Agricultural Development and Policy, Overseas Development Institute
- John Adams, Senior Research Economist, LMC International
The witnesses are likely to face questions on issues such as:
- the effectiveness of measures that have been put in place to mitigate the effect of the 2006 reform on African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP)/Least Developed countries (LDC);
- how the reform of the EU regime could be managed to help the industry in ACP and LDC countries to adjust to the impact of a more liberal sugar market;
- the role that EU and Member State development policies have; and
- what changes should be made to Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reforms in order to improve the coherence between the CAP and development.
