    Abstract

    Caribbean agriculture is currently facing substantial challenges because of the diminution and elimination of European Union (EU) preferences for major agricultural exports, together with the general impact of trade liberalization. This is reflected in the substantial decline of major agricultural exports (Report of the Caribbean Trade and Adjustment Group, 2001) and in the overall lackluster performance of the agricultural sector in recent years (see Appendix Table 1). Generally, throughout the region (excluding Haiti), the rural sector accounts for the largest proportion of the poor, on average approximately 25% of the population.
