 Committee on Agriculture
 Special Session


  DECISION ON MEASURES CONCERNING THE POSSIBLE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF
 THE REFORM PROGRAMME ON LEAST-DEVELOPED AND NET FOOD-IMPORTING
                DEVELOPING COUNTRIES (NFIDC DECISION)

         Actions Taken Within the Framework of the Decision as Notified by Members

                                 Background Paper by the Secretariat


1.      At the first Special Session of the Committee on Agriculture on 23-24 March 2000, it was
agreed that the Secretariat would provide, inter alia, "a background paper on implementation of the
least-developed and net-food importing developing countries' Decision" (paragraph 7(d) of
G/AG/NG/1). This paper complements the paper on the implementation of the NFIDC Decision
(G/AG/NG/S/3 refers) and should be read in conjunction with it. The present paper revises and
further updates the information compiled from Members' notifications first provided within the
framework of the Process of Analysis and Information Exchange as documents AIE/S8 dated 27 May
1998 and AIE/S8/Rev.1 dated 22 February 1999. The paper takes into account the notifications by
Members circulated by the Secretariat up to 15 April 2000.

2.       Ten Members have notified the Committee on Agriculture of measures taken within the
framework of the above Decision, namely Argentina, Australia, Canada, the European Communities,
Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland and the United States (see Sections 1 to 4
and their respective Annexes below for details). One of these Members has notified the first five
years of implementation on a calendar year basis (1995-1999 – Argentina). Two Members have made
notifications for the first three years, either on a calendar year basis (1995 and 1996-1997 – EC), or on
a fiscal year basis (95/96, 96/97 and 97/98 – New Zealand). Another Member has made one
notification on a calendar year basis valid for the four years 1995-1998 (Switzerland). The
notifications of the other five Members cover the first four years of implementation, either on a
calendar year basis (Japan, Norway and South Africa) or on a fiscal/financial year basis (Australia,
Canada and the United States). Another eleven Members (Brazil, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Fiji,
Indonesia, Korea, Malta, Morocco, Philippines, United Arab Emirates and Uruguay) have notified the
Committee on Agriculture that they have not provided food aid during the period covered by their
NF:1 notifications.

3.      For the purposes of this paper, the information contained in the NF:1 notifications has been
re-arranged according to the four categories under which notifications should be made (G/AG/2,
page 34 refers):

        (i)     Section 1 of this paper, together with Annex 1, contains the information notified
                under the heading "Quantity of food aid provided to least-developed and net
                food-importing developing countries". A more complete analysis of the development
                of food aid is contained in document G/AG/S/3.

        (ii)    Section 2 covers the information provided under the heading "Indication of the
                proportion in fully grant form or appropriate concessional terms".

       (iii)   Section 3 and Annex 2 reproduce the information provided under the heading
               "Technical and financial assistance under paragraph 3(iii) of the Decision". The
               information in this section gives details regarding assistance under various aid
               programmes, relevant under paragraph 3(iii) of the NFIDC Decision.

       (iv)    Section 4 and Annex 3, "Other relevant information with respect to actions taken
               within the framework of the Decision ", set out information not readily fitting under
               any of the three first headings, such as assistance programmes by non-governmental
               organizations, assistance by provincial governments, details of food aid under the
               Food Aid Convention, long-term development programmes and emergency relief.

4.      Annex 4 reproduces the text of the Ministerial Decision on Measures Concerning the Possible
Negative Effects of the Reform Programme on Least-Developed and Net Food-Importing Developing
Countries. Annex 5 reproduces the relevant section of the notification requirements (G/AG/2, pages
33-34 refer).

5.      A guide to the information available under Section 1 to 4 of the NF:1 notifications is
presented in Table 1.

SWITZERLAND
Reporting period: calendar years 1995 to 1998 (G/AG/N/CHE/23):

41.     Switzerland's contributions to cereal aid are made within the framework of the Food Aid
Convention, which was renegotiated in 1995. As a co-signatory of that agreement, Switzerland has
undertaken to make an annual contribution of 40,000 tonnes of wheat equivalent.

42.      Such aid is generally provided in cash and not in kind and is mainly made available through
the World Food Programme (WFP; development programme) for the purchase of cereals in the
developing countries. The cereals purchased come mainly from the Mediterranean countries or from
those countries neighbouring the region benefiting so as to stimulate production in those countries and
at the same time raise the level of tolerance, among the recipients, of the goods delivered ("triangular
purchases"). Such aid also has the advantage of combining the distribution of foodstuffs with that of
seed, thereby preventing the formation of food dependency.

43.      In addition to the aid to the WFP, Switzerland regularly provides deliveries of Swiss dairy
products. Such aid meets the "criteria for the use of dairy products as part of food aid", which lay
down the rules to be followed in evaluating the distribution of dairy products and in carrying out such
distribution.

44.     Attachments 15 and 16 of Annex 1, provide information on the distribution of the food aid
provided by Switzerland. This aid forms part of Switzerland's humanitarian aid. The aid provided is
not allocated on the basis of the criteria of "least-developed countries" (LDCs) or "net-food-importing
developing countries" (NFIDCs), but solely in response to the need for humanitarian aid of the
regions affected by natural or other disasters. In actual fact, however, the countries benefiting from
Swiss programmes largely overlap with those two groups (cf. Attachment 16 of Annex 1, Food aid in
form of grain, flour or seed in wheat equivalent).

45.      In addition to direct aid in the form of food products, Swiss humanitarian aid is provided in
the form of financial contributions. The funds assigned to that end have served three main purposes:
to provide logistical support and staff for organizations responsible for distributing foodstuffs on the
ground; to establish and maintain the transport infrastructure; to ensure the maintenance of
distribution systems in the beneficiary countries. The assistance provided also includes long-term
development programmes and also emergency relief. See Section 3, pages 60-61

AUSTRALIA
Reporting period: financial year 1995/96 (G/AG/N/AUS/5):

6.       The agency primarily responsible for delivering Australia's aid programme is the Australian
Agency for International Development (AusAID). AusAID provides funding to the Australian Centre
for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) which also funds projects at both a bilateral level
                                                                                       G/AG/NG/S/4

and internationally. ACIAR delivers programmes in collaboration with Australian research
institutions and their counterparts in developing countries. A major focus of all projects is poverty
alleviation through increased food security.

7.       In the financial year 1995/96, AusAID provided a total of $A 318,025,616 on programmes
within the ambit of the Decision and related to countries developing their food security:
$A 227,000,000 in multilateral core funding; $A 11,401,197 in regional funding; $A 24,214,519 in
bilateral assistance; $A 13,409,900 on humanitarian relief; and $A 42,000,000 in scholarships.

8.      All financial assistance provided through AusAID is in wholly grant form.          Details of
assistance provided in the financial year ending 30 June 1996 follows.

        (a)     Multilateral core funding

9.      A proportion of Australia's core contributions to the multilateral development banks and other
relevant multilateral Organizations is used for food security related development activities in LDCs
and NFIDCs. The figures reflected here, however, refer to Australia's total contribution to relevant
agencies. Clearly, only a part of this funding should be recognised as funding for food security in
LDCs and NFIDCs.

around 80 are currently in progress in 24 countries. Much support is also channelled into international
agricultural research centres whose mandate is also to increase global food security.

        (a)     Multilateral programmes

15.     One of the major criteria on which ACIAR bases its allocation of Australia's funds to the
agricultural research centres (IARCs) is the contribution of a centre's research to economic
development, poverty alleviation and equity, and sustainability; see Attachment 3 of Annex 2 for a
disaggregation of the funds allocated to IARCs in 1995/96.

        (b)     Bilateral programmes

16.     The projects funded under ACIAR's bilateral programme comprise research targeting the
following food security issues:

        (i)     animal sciences, leading to healthier, more productive livestock for small farmers
                through improved animal nutrition and control of parasites;

        (ii)    crop sciences, by higher yielding horticultural crops through the use of genetically
                superior cultivars, control of diseases and development of environmentally safe
                methods to combat pests and weeds;

        (iii)   fisheries, through conservation and responsible utilisation of wild fisheries,
                developing superior breedstock and breeding techniques, sourcing suitable foods and
                controlling disease to ensure more productive and sustainable aquaculture;

        (iv)    forestry, through identification of suitable fast-growing tree species for use in
                community forestry to provide, amongst other uses, fuelwood for cooking;

        (v)     land and water resources, by crop production improvements through better methods
                of improving soil fertility and structure, ameliorating salinity in soil and water and
                conserving agricultural land through better cultivation practices;

        (vi)    post-harvest technology, through reduction of food wastage after harvest by ensuring
                that grain, fruit, vegetables, and fish can be handled, stored, processed and
                transported safely and economically between harvest and disposal to consumers; and
G/AG/NG/S/4

                transported safely and economically between harvest and disposal to consumers; and

        (vii)   economics, through economic research to underpin the development of government
                policy aimed at encouraging efficient and sustainable use and management of
                agriculture and natural resources, including land, water, fish and forest resources.

Reporting period: financial year 1997/98 (G/AG/N/AUS/21):

27.     The agency primarily responsible for delivering Australia's aid programmes is the AusAID.
AusAID aims to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development in developing countries not just
by improving agriculture and rural development but also by directing its efforts across a variety of
sectors. The ACIAR also assists developing countries through both bilateral and multilateral projects.
ACIAR delivers agricultural research programmes in collaboration with Australian institutions and
their counterparts in developing countries. A major focus of all projects is poverty alleviation through
sustainable agriculture and increased food security.

28.    In the financial year 1997-98, AusAID provided a total of $A 244.9 million for programmes
within the ambit of the Decision and related to countries developing their food security.
$A 161.9 million was provided as multilateral core funding, $A 8.1 million as regional funding,
$A 19.5 million in bilateral/developmental food aid, $A 25 million on bilateral humanitarian/
emergency assistance and $A 30.4 million in scholarships to relevant LDCs/NFIDCs.

29.     All financial assistance provided through AusAID and ACIAR is in wholly grant form.
Details of assistance provided in the financial year ending 30 June 1998 follows.

       (vi)    post-harvest technology, through reduction of food wastage after harvest by ensuring
               that grain, fruit, vegetables, and fish can be handled, stored, processed and
               transported safely and economically between harvest and disposal to consumers; and

       (vii)   economics, through economic research to underpin the development of government
               policy aimed at encouraging efficient and sustainable use and management of
               agriculture and natural resources, including land, water, fish and forest resources.

Reporting period: financial year 1998/99 (G/AG/N/AUS/25):

37.     The agency primarily responsible for delivering Australia's aid programme is the AusAID.
AusAID aims to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development in developing countries not just
by improving agriculture and rural development, but also by directing its efforts across a variety of
sectors. The ACIAR also assists developing countries through both bilateral and multilateral projects.
ACIAR delivers agricultural research programmes in collaboration with Australian institutions and
their counterparts in developing countries. A major focus of all projects is poverty alleviation through
sustainable agriculture and increased food security.

38.     In the financial year 1998-99, Australia provided a total of $A 264.3 million for programmes
within the ambit of the Decision and related to countries developing their food security. Of this over
$A 147 million was directed to LDCs/NFIDCs. This expenditure was channelled through a number
of programming windows including multilaterals, regional, bilateral, humanitarian/emergency
assistance, NGOs, ACIAR and a small amount through Other Government Departments (OGDs).

39.      All financial assistance provided through AusAID and ACIAR is in fully grant form. Details
of assistance provided in the financial year ending 30 June 1999 follow.

(i)      AusAID

         (a)    Multilateral Core Funding

40.     A proportion of Australia's core contributions to the multilateral development banks and other
relevant multilateral Organizations is used for food security related development activities in LDCs
and NFIDCs. The figures reflected here, however, refer to Australia's total food security contribution
to relevant agencies. Clearly, only a part of this funding should be recognised as funding for food
security in LDCs and NFIDCs.
                                                                                           G/AG/NG/S/4

        (b)      Bilateral and Regional Programmes

41.      Most of Australia's aid is delivered in the context of country and regional programmes.
Bilateral country strategies reflect recipient government priorities as well as Australia's capacity to
assist. Specific projects are developed with partner countries in order to provide technical and
financial assistance to: improve agricultural productivity and sustainability, agricultural storage,
forestry and fisheries, environmental management, management of water resources, the provision of
infrastructure related to food security and to assist countries adjust to the new trading environment.

42.     In addition to bilateral programmes, AusAID manages several regional programmes. These
are often the most cost effective response to region-wide development challenges. Expenditure at a
country/regional level is given below.

Bilateral and regional expenditure to LDCs and NFIDCs

        (c)      Scholarships

43.      Scholarships in agriculture, forestry and fishing are counted as food security related activities.
In 1998-99 Australia funded 644 students (56 per cent males and 44 per cent females) from LDCs and
identified NFIDCs. Of these awards, about 6 per cent, valued at $A 1.3 million, were for study in
agriculture, forestry and fishing.

        (d)      Humanitarian relief (in addition to food aid)

44.   In 1998-99, Australia undertook a number of projects in relation to humanitarian relief to
LDCs and NFIDCs. These projects, valued at $A 11 million, impacted directly on agricultural
G/AG/NG/S/4

production in several countries. Examples of programmes include assistance for internally displaced
persons in Sri Lanka and the World Food Programme for Cambodian Protracted Relief and
Rehabilitation Operation project (Annex 2, Attachment 10).

(ii)    ACIAR

45.     In 1998-99, the ACIAR expended $A 43.5 million, of which $A 24.9 million was in support
of research relating directly to agricultural productivity of recipient countries.

        (a)     Multilateral programmes

46.      In 1998-99 ACIAR provided $A 10.1 million to multilateral International Agricultural
Research Centres (IARCs) whose mandate is to increase global food security. One of the major
criteria on which ACIAR bases its allocation of Australia's funds to the IARCs is the contribution of a
centre's research to economic development, poverty alleviation and sustainability (Annex 2,
Attachment 11).

        (b)     Bilateral programmes

47.     Projects funded under ACIAR's bilateral programme comprise research targeting the
following food security and poverty alleviation issues:

        (i)     animal sciences, leading to more productive livestock for smallholder farming
                systems through improvements in animal nutrition, disease and parasite control,
                reproductive health and animal husbandry;

        (ii)    crop sciences, by developing higher yielding food crops through the use of
                genetically superior cultivars, the control of diseases, and the development of
                environmentally safe methods to combat pests and weeds;

        (iii)   fisheries, through conservation and responsible utilisation of wild marine and
                freshwater fisheries, developing superior breedstock and breeding techniques,
                sourcing suitable foods and controlling disease to ensure more productive and
                sustainable aquaculture;

        (iv)    forestry, through identification of suitable fast-growing tree species for use in
                community forestry to provide, amongst other uses, food crops and fuelwood for
                cooking.

        (v)     land and water resources, by enhancing crop production through better methods of
                improving soil fertility and structure, conservation of soil and water resources,
                including erosion and water management, ameliorating salinity of soil and water, and
                conserving agricultural land through better cultivation practices and land management
                systems;

        (vi)    post-harvest technology, through reduction of food wastage after harvest by ensuring
                that grain, fruit, vegetables, and fish can be handled, stored, processed and
                transported safely and economically between harvest and disposal to consumers; and

        (vii)   economics, through economic research to underpin government policy aimed at
                encouraging trade and agricultural development, and the efficient use and
                preservation of agricultural and natural resources (including land and water, fish and
                forest resources).
                                                                                                      G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                                           Page 37


CANADA
Reporting period: 1995/96 (G/AG/N/CAN/11):

48.     All technical and financial assistance provided by Canada from its Official Development
Assistance (ODA) is in grant form. The agency primarily responsible for delivering Canada's aid is
the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). CIDA delivers programmes through
multilateral channels (via organizations that have a development mandate), as well as bilateral and
partnership channels. Canadian ODA is also channelled via CIDA's partner, the International
Development Research Centre (IDRC), which undertakes bilateral projects with a scientific or
research focus. The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) is responsible
for providing support to multilateral organizations which have only a partial development mandate8
The Department of Finance is also involved, transferring Canadian contributions to development
banks such as the World Bank and the International Development Agency (IDA). This last portion
does not fall within the purview of this notification.

49.    Information related to agriculture and related assistance9 provided to LDCs and NFIDCs via
CIDA, IDRC and the DFAIT in Fiscal Year 1995/96 is as follows:

(i)      CIDA

         (a)      Multilateral core funding

50.      The figures reflected in Attachment 12 of Annex 2 represent Canada's total ODA contribution
for FY 1995/96 to specific multilateral organizations with mandates that relate, completely or in part,
to agriculture and/or food security. The World Food Programme (WFP), the Consultative Group on
International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), the Commonwealth Agricultural Bureaux International
(CABI), and the International Board for Soil Research and Management (IBSRAM), which are all
organizations where a significant proportion of their funds is directed at agricultural and food security
related activities, are particularly relevant to this notification. In the case of the other organizations,
only a portion of this funding should be considered as funding for agriculture and food security
related activities in LDCs and NFIDCs.

         (b)      Bilateral (government-to-government) programmes

51.     CIDA's bilateral aid is delivered through four geographic branches (Africa and the Middle
East, Asia, Americas and Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union10.
Programming consists of government-to-government programmes and projects. Total bilateral
programming was Can$0.81 billion in 1995/96. Bilateral projects are supported in more than 100
countries, representing 80 per cent of the world's population. Bilateral programming is carried out in
accordance with bilateral agreements and planned in cooperation with the country via the Country
Development Policy Frameworks (CDPFs).
         8
             A small amount of Canada's ODA is channelled via other government agencies (the Export
Development Corporation, Canada Post) and provincial governments.
          9
             For the purposes of Section 3 of this notification, as regards technical and financial assistance
identified under paragraph 3(iii) of the Decision, information is restricted to agricultural activities: agricultural
production, infrastructure, harvesting, human resource development activities in the agriculture sector, and
education related to agriculture. In addition to technical and financial assistance related to agricultural activities,
Canada provides technical and financial assistance to other sectors. Assistance to the forestry and fishery
sectors, while not reported here, also makes an important contribution to food security.
          10
             As of 1994, CIDA's budget includes an allocation for programmes of cooperation with the countries
of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.
G/AG/NG/S/4
Page 38


52.    Information on agricultural and related technical and financial support to LDCs and NFIDCs
provided via this bilateral channel in the FY 1995/96 is shown in Attachment 13 of Annex 2.

53.    Of the total of Can$25.23 million in FY 1995/96, $A 12.8 million was directed to LDCs while
$A 12.4 million was directed to NFIDCs.

        (c)     Canadian Partnership Branch (CPB)

54.      The CPB, which receives approximately 12 per cent of CIDA's total budget, supports the
activities of international and regional non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and Canadian
organizations, institutions and private sector firms in their development programmes and projects with
people and organizations of developing countries. It is comprised of five divisions:

-       the International Non-Governmental Organization Programming, which supports global
        networks of national and local NGOs involved in development issues of importance to
        Canada;

-       the NGO Division, which provides a portion of support for projects and programmes that
        build partnerships between Canadian NGOs and NGOs of developing countries;

-       the Educational Institutions Programme, which focuses on the overseas development-related
        activities of Canadian post-secondary institutions, providing support through two channels -
        the universities programme and the colleges programme;

-       the Industrial Co-operation Programme (INC), which undertakes development-related
        activities with the Canadian private sector; and,

-       the Co-operative, Unions and Professional Associations Programme, which encourages co-
        operation through these kinds of groups.

55.      In FY 1995/96, CPB disbursed a total of Can$225.31 million on some 3,468 projects and
programmes. However, it is not possible to identify data on specific activities in particular countries
(in this case LDCs and NFIDCs). CPB support is designed to be flexible and responsive to the
diversity of civil society and complex development needs. Therefore, it is often cross-sectoral in
nature and can involve multiple numbers of countries and/or regions, as well as a variety of
mechanisms for funding activities including via programme and project. The exception is the
Industrial Co-operation Programme, where country and sector specificity is possible.

56.      Attachment 14 of Annex 2 provides data on CPB programming (for the INC Programme and
for the rest of CPB Programmes) where there is a clear indication of agricultural and related projects
in the LDCs and NFIDCs. It is important to note that the information provided for "Rest of CPB"
programmes should be considered as a minimum indication only. For example, it has not been
possible to extract information for projects/programmes with only a sub-theme of agriculture, or with
a regional rather than country specific focus; therefore, significant relevant CPB programming has
not been reported here.
                                                                                                   G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                                        Page 39


(ii)     IDRC

57.      The IDRC is a Canadian public corporation which supports scientific research that meets the
priorities of developing countries and the basic needs of the world's poor. One of its core
programming themes is "Food Systems Under Stress". In FY 1995/96, IDRC undertook country-to-
country disbursements in agriculture totalling Can$4.86 million, which represented 7.32 per cent of
their total allocation.

58.     A review of the projects disbursing in the period FY 1995/96 identified some 318 projects
with a value of Can$4.41 million expended in LDCs and NFIDCs in agricultural and related areas
(including related environment and natural resource management), and is shown in Attachment 15 of
Annex 2.

(iii)    DFAIT

59.      Canada's core contributions to multilateral organizations such as the Food and Agricultural
Organization (FAO), totalling Can$7.80 million, and to the World Meteorological Organization
(WMO), totalling Can$0.07 million, are channelled through the Department of Foreign Affairs and
International Trade. A portion of these contributions can be assumed to contribute to food security
related activities because of the mandates of these multilateral organizations. These figures are
Canada's total contribution to these agencies, so only a part of this funding should be considered as
funding for agriculture and food security related activities in LDCs and NFIDCs.

Reporting period: 1996/97 (G/AG/N/CAN/18):

60.     In 1996/97, Canada provided a total of Can$2.68 billion in ODA.11 The CIDA manages a
substantial portion (60 per cent) of Canadian ODA. It delivers programmes through bilateral
(government-to-government) channels (28 per cent of ODA), partnership programmes (10 per cent of
ODA), as well as through multilateral channels (22 per cent of ODA).

61.      Canadian assistance is also channelled via the IDRC (4 per cent of ODA) which undertakes
bilateral projects with a scientific or research focus and a small amount to the International Centre for
Human Rights and Good Governance (ICHRGG). In addition to their own international assistance
envelope allocation, the DFAIT is responsible for about 5 per cent of ODA for certain grants and
contributions to international organizations, usually those which have only a partial development
mandate. Finally, the Department of Finance is responsible for about 21 per cent of Canadian ODA
involving contributions to the World Bank, the IDA and the Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility
of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).12

62.     The ODA contributions managed by the Department of Finance and the work of the ICHRGG
do not fall within the purview of this notification. Information related to agriculture and related
technical assistance13 provided to LDC/NFIDCs via CIDA, IDRC and DFAIT in FY1996/97 is as
follows:

         11
             In addition to ODA, Canada provides aid to More Advanced Developing Countries and some other
Countries in Transition identified as DAC Part II Countries.
          12
              A small amount of Canada's ODA is channelled via other government agencies (the Export
Development Corporation, Canada Post) and provincial governments.
          13
             For the purposes of Section 3 of this notification, as regards technical and financial assistance
identified under paragraph 3(iii) of the Decision, information is restricted to agricultural and related activities:
agricultural production, infrastructure, harvesting, human resource development activities in the agriculture
sector, and education related to agriculture. In addition to agriculture and related technical and financial
assistance, Canada supports other sectors which contribute to food security. While not requested by the

63.      Attachment 16 of Annex 2 represents Canada's (CIDA) total IAE contribution for FY 1996/97
to specific multilateral organizations with mandates that relate, completely or in part, to agriculture
and/or food security. Given the nature of multilateral organizations' funding and programming
activities, no specific portion of Canadian contributions can be identified as targeted directly to
LDC/NFIDCs. Nevertheless, Canadian support to the WFP and the CGIAR in particular, are likely to
be relevant to this notification.

        (b)      Bilateral (government-to-government) programmes

64.     CIDA's bilateral aid is delivered through four geographic branches (Africa and the Middle
East, Asia, Americas and Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union).
Programming consists of government-to-government programmes and projects. Total bilateral
programming was Can$780.49 million in 1996/97. Bilateral projects are supported in more than 100
countries, representing 80 per cent of the world's population. Canadian Bilateral programming is
carried out in accordance with bilateral agreements and planned in cooperation with the country via
the Country Development Policy Frameworks (CDPFs).

65.     In FY 1996/97, LDC/NFIDCs received Can$348.9 million (45 per cent), of the total amount
of Canadian bilateral programmes (Can$780.49 million), Can$25.27 million of which was in the
agriculture and related programming, approximately 7 per cent of the bilateral programming going to
these countries. Country specific information on agricultural and related technical support to
LDC/NFIDCs via the bilateral channel, FY 1996/97 is shown in Attachment 17 of Annex 2.

        (c)      CPB

66.      The CPB supports the activities of international NGOs and Canadian organizations,
institutions and private sector firms in their development programmes and projects with people and
organizations of developing countries. It is comprised of five divisions:

-       the INGO Programme, which supports global networks of national and local NGOs involved
        in development issues of importance to Canada;

-       the NGO Division, which provides a portion of support for projects and programmes that
        build partnerships between Canadian NGOs and NGOs of developing countries;

-       the Educational Institutions Programme, which focuses on the overseas development-related
        activities of Canadian post-secondary institutions, providing support through two channels -
        the universities programme and the colleges programme;

-       the Cooperative, Unions and Professional Associations Programme, which encourages
        cooperation through these kinds of groups; and,

-       the INC, which undertakes development-related activities with the Canadian private sector.



Agriculture Committee for this notification, Canada has voluntarily provided this additional information. See
Attachment 5 of Annex 3 on Canadian technical assistance in the agro-forestry and fishery sectors which
contribute to food security in the countries in question.
                                                                                           G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                                Page 41


67.      In FY 1996/97, CPB disbursed a total of Can$280.9 million on nearly 1,600 projects and
programmes. CPB support is designed to be flexible and responsive to the diversity of civil society
and complex development needs. Therefore, it is often cross-sectoral in nature and can involve
multiple numbers of countries and/or regions, as well as a variety of mechanisms for funding
activities including via programme and project. It is therefore difficult, in a large portion of the
disbursements being channelled through Canadian voluntary organizations, to identify data on
specific sectors of activities or in particular countries (in this case agriculture related activities in
LDC/NFIDCs). The exception is the Industrial Cooperation Program, where country and sector
specificity is possible. Attachments 18 and 19 of Annex 2 provide data for CPB programming for
LDC/NFIDC countries for the INC programme, and for the other Voluntary programmes, where there
is indication of agricultural and related project.

68.     The INC programme's total disbursements for FY 1996/97 was Can$56.06 million on
649 projects, Can$3.2 million of which was disbursed on 52 agriculture and related projects in
25 countries. Seventeen projects valued at Can$0.90 million was disbursed on agriculture and related
projects operating in 11 LDC/NFIDC countries. Agriculture programming directed at LDC/NFIDC
countries, therefore, represents about 28 per cent of the total agricultural activity of the INC
programme and 2 per cent of the total overall INC programme.

69.      For the rest of the "CPB Voluntary program" (excluding INC), total disbursements for
FY 1996/97 were Can$224.8 million on more than 927 projects and programmes. At least
184 agriculture and related projects, with a total value of Can$4.91 million, were operational in
37 LDC/NFIDC countries. It is important to note that the information provided in Attachment 19 of
Annex 2 for the "Other CPB Voluntary Programmes"(excluding INC) should be considered as a
minimum indication only. Significant relevant CPB programming may not be reported here. Where
there is a clear indication of agriculture and related activity in the focus countries, the proportion has
been indicated in Attachment 19 of Annex 2; however, it has not always been possible to capture
information for projects/programmes with only a sub-theme of agriculture, or with a regional rather
than country specific focus. For example, CPB supported 54 additional global/regional agriculture
and related projects, valued at Can$29.54 million; it is likely that some of this will benefit
LDC/NFIDCs in those regions.

(ii)    The IDRC
70.      The IDRC is a Canadian public corporation which supports scientific research that meets the
priorities of developing countries and the basic needs of the world's poor. In FY 1996/97, its total
budget (including administrative costs) was Can$100.2 million. One of its core programming themes
is "Food Systems Under Stress". In FY 1996/97, IDRC undertook country-to-country disbursements
in agriculture totalling Can$12.15 million, which represented 18 per cent of their total allocation.

71.     A review for FY 1996/97 of IDRC projects disbursing in LDC/ NFIDCs in agriculture and
related sectors identified some 95 projects with a value of Can$3.29 million (27 per cent of all
disbursements in agriculture) as per Attachment 20 of Annex 2.

72.      In addition to the Can$3.60 million identified as agriculture and related projects disbursing in
the LDC/NFIDCs indicated in Attachment 20 of Annex 2 IDRC invested an additional
Can$5.7 million in agriculture and related projects in global and regional research, some of which will
likely benefit the countries in question.

(iii)   DFAIT
73.    Canada's core contributions to multilateral organizations such as the FAO totalling
Can$14.2 million, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) totalling
Can$4.6 million, and the WMO totalling Can$2.0 million, are channelled through the DFAIT. A
G/AG/NG/S/4
Page 42


portion of these contributions can be assumed to contribute to food security related activities because
of the mandates of these multilateral organizations. These figures are Canada's total contribution to
these agencies, so only a part of this funding should be considered as funding for agriculture and food
security related activities in LDCs and NFIDCs.

Reporting period: 1997/98 (G/AG/N/CAN/25):

74.     The CIDA is the primary agency responsible for the disbursement of Canadian ODA. CIDA
delivers programmes through bilateral (government-to-government) channels, partnership
programmes, as well as through multilateral channels. In FY1997/98, Canada provided a total of
Can$2.53 billion in ODA14 (CIDA alone Can$1.65 billion).

75.     In addition, in FY 1997/98, Can$88.76 million in Canadian ODA was channelled via the
IDRC which undertakes bilateral projects with a scientific or research focus. The DFAIT is
responsible for a small portion of ODA for certain grants and contributions to international
organizations, which usually have only a partial development mandate. Finally, the Department of
Finance is also responsible for a portion of Canadian ODA involving contributions to the World
Bank, the IDA and the Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility of the IMF.15

76.      The ODA contributions managed by the Department of Finance do not fall within the purview
of this notification. Information related to agriculture and related technical assistance16 provided to
LDCs and NFIDCs via CIDA, IDRC and DFAIT in FY1997/98 is set out below.

(i)     The CIDA

        (a)      Multilateral Core Funding

77.      Attachment 21 of Annex 2 represents CIDA's total FY 1997/98 contribution to specific
multilateral organizations with mandates that relate, completely or in part, to agriculture and/or food
security. Given the nature of multilateral organizations' funding and programming activities, no
specific portion of Canadian contributions can be identified as targeted directly to LDCs or NFIDCs.
Nevertheless, Canadian support to the WFP and the CGIAR in particular, are likely to be relevant to
this notification.

        (b)      Bilateral (Government-to-Government) Programmes

78.      CIDA's bilateral assistance is delivered through four geographic branches (Africa and the
Middle East, Asia, Americas and the Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe and the Former
Soviet Union). Programming consists of government-to-government programmes and projects. Total
bilateral programming was Can$740.50 million in FY1997/98. Canadian Bilateral programming is
carried out in accordance with bilateral agreements and planned in co-operation with the country via
the Country Development Policy Frameworks (CDPFs). In FY 1997/98, bilateral programming was
undertaken in 16 of the LDCs and NFIDCs for a total value of Can$214.33 million. This represents
about 29 per cent of the total amount of Canadian bilateral programmes. Can$16.9 million of bilateral
programming directed at LDCs and NFIDCs was in agriculture and related programming, which is
approximately 2 per cent of total Canadian bilateral ODA, and 8 per cent of the bilateral programming
going to these countries. Country specific information on agricultural and related technical support to
LDCs and NFIDCs via the bilateral channel, in FY 1997/98 is shown in Attachment 22 of Annex 2.

                                                                                               Page 43


        (c)     CPB
79.      The CPB supports the activities of NGOs and Canadian organizations, academic and research
institutions and private sector firms in their development programmes and projects with people and
organizations of developing countries. It is comprised of five divisions:

-       the NGO Division provides contributions for projects and programmes that build partnerships
        including support for: INGOs; Canadian NGO programmes; volunteer sending agencies; and
        the NGO project facility;

-       the International Cooperation Division (ICD) focuses on overseas development-related
        activities of Canadian post-secondary institutions including support for the Educational
        Institutions Programme (EIP) as well as a section for scholarships; Environmental NGOs; and
        Institutions. Also included in this division are the Cooperative, Unions and Professional
        Associations Programme (CUPA) which encourages cooperation through these groups;

-       the INC facilitates development-related activities with the Canadian private sector;

-       the Youth Action Division is geared to promoting youth action for development;

-       finally, the Policy, Strategy, Planning and Operations (PSPO) Division is largely a policy
        group but also undertakes special programmes such as: funding to facilitate NGO
        participation at international conferences.

80.      In FY 1997/98, CPB disbursed a total of Can$262 million on nearly 3,082 projects and
programmes. CPB support is designed to be flexible and responsive to the diversity of civil society
and complex development needs. Therefore, it is often cross-sectoral in nature and can involve
multiple numbers of countries and/or regions, as well as a variety of mechanisms for funding
activities, including via programme and project. Consequently, it is difficult, in a large portion of the
disbursements being channelled through Canadian voluntary organizations, to identify data on
specific sectors of activities or in particular countries (in this case agriculture related activities in
LDCs and NFIDCs). The exception is the Industrial Co-operation Program, where country and sector
specificity is possible. Attachments 23 and 24 in Annex 2 provide data for CPB programming for
LDCs and NFIDCs for the INC programme, and for the other voluntary programmes as a whole,
where there is indication of agricultural and related project activity.

81.      For the "CPB Voluntary Program" (excluding INC), total disbursements for FY 1997/98 were
Can$212.9 million on more than 2551 projects and programmes. At least 145 agriculture and related
projects, with a total value of Can$4,648.89 thousand, were operational in 35 LDCs/NFIDCs. It is
important to note that the information provided in Attachment 24 of Annex 2 for the "CPB Voluntary
Programmes" (excluding INC) should be considered as a minimum indication only. Significant
relevant CPB programming may not be reported here. Where there is a clear indication of agriculture
and related activity in the focus countries, the proportion has been indicated in Attachment 24 of
Annex 2. However, it has not always been possible to capture information for projects/programmes
with only a sub-theme of agriculture, or with a regional/global rather than country specific focus. For
example, CPB supported 7 additional global/regional agriculture and related projects, valued at
Can$14.89 million, and it is likely that some of this will benefit LDCs and/or NFIDCs in those
regions.

(ii)    IDRC
82.      The IDRC is a Canadian public corporation, which supports scientific research that meets the
priorities of developing countries and the basic needs of the world's poor. In FY1997/98 its total
budget (including administrative costs) was Can$88.76 million. One of its core programming themes
G/AG/NG/S/4
Page 44


is "Food Systems Under Stress". In FY1997/98, IDRC undertook disbursements in the agriculture
sector totalling Can$8.05 million, which represented about 9 per cent of their total allocation.

83.      A review for FY1997/98 of IDRC projects disbursing in LDCs and NFIDCs in agriculture
and related sectors, identified some 68 projects with a value of Can$3.16 million (about 40 per cent of
all disbursements in agriculture) as per Attachment 25 of Annex 2.

84.     In addition to the over Can$3 million in agriculture and related projects in LDCs and NFIDCs
indicated in Attachment 25 of Annex 2, IDRC invested Can$ 11.5 million in agriculture and related
projects in global and regional research, some of which will likely benefit the countries in question.

(iii)   DFAIT

85.     Canada's annual core contributions to multilateral organizations such as the FAO, the IICA
and the WMO are channelled through the DFAIT. In FY1997/98, these contributions were,
respectively, Can$15.0, Can$5.25 and Can$1.8 million. A portion of these contributions can be
assumed to contribute to food security related activities because of the mandates of these multilateral
organizations.

Reporting period: 1998/99 (G/AG/N/CAN/34):

86.     The CIDA is the primary agency responsible for the disbursement of Canadian ODA. CIDA
delivers programmes through bilateral (government-to-government) channels, partnership
programmes, as well as through multilateral channels.

87.      In FY1998/99, Canada provided a total of Can$ 2.5917 billion in ODA, of which CIDA
managed Can$1.66 billion. Can$95.26 million was channelled via the IDRC which undertakes
bilateral projects with a scientific or research focus. The DFAIT is responsible for a small portion of
ODA for certain grants and contributions to international organizations, which usually have only a
partial development mandate. Finally, the Department of Finance is also responsible for a portion of
Canadian ODA involving contributions to the World Bank, the IDA and the Enhanced Structural
Adjustment Facility of the IMF.18

88.      The ODA contributions managed by the Department of Finance do not fall within the purview
of this notification. Information related to agriculture and related technical assistance19 provided to
LDCs and NFIDCs via CIDA, IDRC and DFAIT in FY1998/99 is set out below.

(i)     The CIDA

        (a)      Multilateral Core Funding

89.      Annex 2, Attachment 26 represents CIDA's total FY 1998/99 contribution to specific
multilateral organizations with mandates that relate, completely or in part, to agriculture and/or food
security. Given the nature of multilateral organizations' funding and programming activities, no
specific portion of Canadian contributions can be identified as targeted directly to LDCs or NFIDCs.
Nevertheless, Canadian support to the WFP and the CGIAR in particular, are likely to be relevant to
this notification.

        17
           Due to a delay in the compilation of CIDA and IDRC financial reporting for the FY1998/99 period,
total ODA information for this annual NF:1 reporting are only preliminary and still subject to minor variation.
        18
           In addition, a small amount of Canada's ODA is channelled via other government agencies (the
Export Development Corporation, Canada Post) and provincial governments.
        19
           See footnote 13 and Annex 3, Attachment 7.
                                                                                              G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                                   Page 45


        (b)      Bilateral (Government-to-Government) Programmes

90.    CIDA's bilateral assistance is delivered through three geographic branches (Africa and the
Middle East, Asia, and Americas and the Caribbean) as well as a special programme for Central and
Eastern Europe20. Total bilateral programming (for the three core geographic regions) was
Can$653.20 million in FY1998/9921.

91.      Canadian bilateral programming consists of government-to-government programmes and
projects which are carried out in accordance with bilateral agreements and planned in co-operation
with the country via the CDPFs. In FY 1998/99, bilateral programming supported 482 projects in 60
of the LDCs and NFIDCs for a total value of Can$ 310.84 million. This represents approximately 22
48 per cent of the total amount of Canadian bilateral programmes. Can$18.90 million worth of
bilateral programming directed at LDCs and NFIDCs, was in agriculture and related programming,
which is approximately 3 per cent of total Canadian bilateral ODA, and approximately 6 per cent of
the bilateral programming going to these countries. Country specific information on agricultural and
related technical support to LDCs and NFIDCs via the bilateral channel, in FY 1998/99 is shown in
Attachment 27 of Annex 2.

92.    CIDA disbursed an additional Can$4.2 million on global and regional CPB Voluntary
programming in the fisheries and agro-forestry sectors, some of which may have benefited LDCs and
NFIDCs. Similarly, IDRC disbursed an additional Can$0.5 million on global and regional
programmes in the fisheries and agro-forestry sectors, some of which may have benefited LDCs and
NFIDCs.

        (c)      CPB

93.      The CPB supports the activities of NGOs and Canadian organizations, academic and research
institutions and private sector firms in their development programmes and projects with people and
organizations of developing countries. It is comprised of five divisions:

-       the NGO Division provides contributions for projects and programmes that build partnerships
        including support for: INGOs; Canadian NGO programmes; volunteer sending agencies; and
        the NGO project facility;

-       the ICD focuses on overseas development-related activities of Canadian post-secondary
        institutions including support for the EIP as well as a section for scholarships; Environmental
        NGOs; and Institutions. Also included in this division are the CUPA which encourages
        cooperation through these groups;

-       the INC, facilitates development-related activities with the Canadian private sector;

-       the Youth Action Division is geared to promoting youth action for development;

-       finally, the PSPO Division is largely a policy group but also undertakes special programmes
        such as: funding to facilitate NGO participation at international conferences.


        20
            In addition to ODA, Canada provides aid to More Advance Developing Countries and some other
Countries in Transition identified as DAC Part II countries.
         21
            Due to a delay in the compilation of CIDA financial reporting for the FY1998/99 period, total ODA
information for this annual NF:1 reporting are only preliminary and still subject to minor variation.
22
   Percentages are approximates based on a calculation using preliminary figures and should only be considered
indicative.
G/AG/NG/S/4
Page 46


94.      In FY 1998/99, CPB disbursed a total of Can$261 million on some 2,716 projects and
programmes. CPB support is designed to be flexible and responsive to the diversity of civil society
and complex development needs. Therefore, it is often cross-sectoral in nature and can involve
multiple numbers of countries and/or regions, as well as a variety of mechanisms for funding
activities including via programme and project. Consequently, it is difficult, in a large portion of the
disbursements being channelled through Canadian voluntary organizations, to identify data on
specific sectors of activities or in particular countries (in this case agriculture related activities in
LDCs and NFIDCs). The exception is the Industrial Co-operation Program, where country and sector
specificity is possible. Annex 2, Attachments 28 and 29 provide data for CPB programming for
LDCs and NFIDCs for the INC programme, and for the other Voluntary programmes as a whole,
where there is indication of agricultural and related project activity.

95.     For the "CPB Voluntary Program" (excluding INC), total disbursements for FY 1998/99 were
Can$217.6 million on more than 2000 programmes, projects and activities. At least 96 agriculture
and related projects, with a total value of Can$3.1 million, were operational in 28 LDCs/NFIDCs. It
is important to note that the information provided in Annex 2, Attachment 29 for the "CPB Voluntary
Programmes" (excluding INC) should be considered as a minimum indication only. Significant
relevant CPB programming may not be reported here. Where there is a clear indication of agriculture
and related activity in the focus countries, the disbursement has been indicated in Annex 2,
Attachment 29.        However, it has not always been possible to capture information for
projects/programmes with only a sub-theme of agriculture, or with a regional/global rather than
country specific focus. For example, CPB supported 89 global/regional agriculture and related
projects, valued at Can$14.95 million, and it is likely that some of this will benefit LDCs and/or
NFIDCs in those regions.

(ii)    IDRC

96.      The IDRC is a Canadian public corporation, which supports scientific research focused to
meet the priorities of developing countries and the basic needs of the world's poor. In FY1998/99 its
total budget (including administrative costs) was Can$95.26 million. One of its core programming
themes is "Food Systems Under Stress". In FY 1998/99, IDRC undertook disbursements in the
agriculture sector totalling Can$8.35 million, which represented about 12.7 per cent per cent of their
total allocation.

97.      A review for FY1998/99 of IDRC projects disbursing in LDCs and NFIDCs in agriculture
and related sectors, identified some 41 projects with a value of Can$2.7 million (about 32 per cent of
all disbursements in agriculture) as per Annex 2, Attachment 30:

98.     In addition to the Can$2.7 million in agriculture and related projects in LDCs and NFIDCs
indicated in Annex 2, Attachment 30, IDRC invested Can$2.1 million in agriculture and related
projects in global and regional research, some of which will likely benefit the countries in question.

(iii)   DFAIT

99.     Canada's annual core contributions to multilateral organizations such as the FAO, the IICA
and the WMO are channelled through the DFAIT. In FY1998/99, these contributions were,
respectively, Can$13.6, Can$5.2 and Can$1.8 million. A portion of these contributions can be
assumed to contribute to food security related activities because of the mandates of these multilateral
organizations.
                                                                                       G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                            Page 47




EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES
Reporting period: 1995 (G/AG/N/EEC/9):

(i)     The ACP countries

100.     The co-operation which the EC extends to the ACP countries in the field of agriculture and
rural development has been, and is still, carried out in the context of the Lomé Conventions. The
broad objective is to raise ACP countries economic level and reduce poverty. The main objectives are
not only to intensify resource use while taking into consideration their renewal, in order to raise
farmers' productive capacity and income, but also to organise production and marketing more
efficiently.

101.    With the attempt to improve and to adapt continuously its contribution to development, the
EC has diversified its instruments and methods of intervention. This co-operation has therefore
evolved significantly in the last few years. Focus has been transferred from the traditional-type
intervention in specific areas to centralised action at the macro-economic level.

102.   EC agricultural and rural co-operation in ACP countries is thus carried out through a
combination of a large number of activities:

        -       Programmable aids - Rural development projects;

        -       Structural Adjustment Facilities (SAF) including the General Import Programmes
                (GIP) and Sectoral Import Programmes (SIP);

        -       Non-programmable aids - Food Aid;

        -       Stabilization of Export Earnings from Agricultural Commodities System (STABEX);

        -       Projects financed via NGOs;

        -       Regional co-operation.

103.    The latest orientations of this co-operation attaches more importance to instruments offering
greater and direct links with sustainable agricultural policies, as compared with isolated forms of
intervention like projects.

104.    The bulk of EC aid to ACP countries is carried out within the context of the European
Development Fund (EDF). Attachment 31 of Annex 2 shows 1995 data of EDF expenditure in the
agricultural and rural development sector in several ACP countries.

(ii)    Development projects with other countries

105.    The European Communities have a number of pluri-annual development projects concerning
the agricultural sector. In the calendar years 1995 and/or 1996 the following projects financed by the
European Communities were executed; see Attachment 32 of Annex 2.

Reporting period: calendar years 1996 and 1997 (G/AG/N/EEC/21):

(i)     The ACP countries
106.    The co-operation which the EU extends to the ACP countries in the field of agriculture and
rural development has been, and is still carried out in the context of the Lomé Convention. The broad
objective is to raise ACP countries economic level and reduce poverty. The main objectives are not
only to intensify resource use while taking into consideration their renewal in order to raise farmers'
productive capacity and income but also to organise production and marketing more efficiently.

107.    With the attempt to improve and to adapt continuously its contribution to development, the
EC has diversified its instruments and methods of intervention. This co-operation has therefore
evolved significantly in the last few years. Focus has been transferred from the traditional-type
intervention in specific areas to centralized action at the macro-economic level.

108.   EC agricultural and rural co-operation in ACP countries is thus carried out through a
combination of a large number of activities:

        -       Programmable aids-rural development projects;

        -       Structural Adjustment Facilities (SAF) including the General Import
                Programmes (GIP) and Sectoral Import Programmes (SIP);

        -       Non-programmable aids-Food Aid;

        -       Stabilization of Export Earnings from the Agricultural Commodities system
                (STABEX);

        -       Projects financed via NGO's;

        -       Regional co-operation.
109.    The latest orientations of this co-operation attaches more importance to instruments offering
greater and direct links with sustainable agricultural policies, as compared with isolated forms of
intervention like projects.

110.   The bulk of EC aid to ACP countries is carried out within the context of the European
Development Fund (EDF). Payments out of the EDF for agriculture amounted in 1996 to 180 million
ECU and in 1997 to 156 million ECU.

(ii)    Development projects with other countries

111.    The European Communities have a number of pluriannual development projects concerning
the agricultural sector. In the calendar year 1996 and/or 1997 the following projects financed by the
European Union were executed; see Attachment 33 of Annex 2.
                                                                                         G/AG/NG/S/4

SWITZERLAND
Reporting period: calendar years 1995 – 1998 (G/AG/N/CHE/23):

135.    As Switzerland's technical and financial assistance is not directed solely to the two categories
of countries, i.e. the LDCs and NFIDCs, there follows a brief description of its official development
assistance (see Attachments 44-49 of Annex 2). However, this shows that Swiss aid in this field
mainly responds – both by its nature and its objectives – to the needs of the LDCs and the NFIDCs.

136.    Swiss official development assistance amounts to about 1.3 billion francs per year, i.e. some
0.32 per cent of the gross national product or, to put it another way, 50 cents per inhabitant per year.
The total amount includes all the financial flows provided on concessional terms to the developing
countries, international institutions and non-governmental organizations from the Swiss
Confederation, the cantons and communes.
                                                                                           G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                                Page 61


137.    The objectives of Swiss international cooperation are as follows:

        -       International cooperation supports the efforts of the developing countries to improve
                the standard of living of their people;

        -       international cooperation should help to put these countries in a position to ensure
                their development by their own means.

138.    Guidelines of the development policy reflect four main themes: the preservation and
maintenance of peace and security and the promotion of human rights, democracy and the rule of law;
the promotion of prosperity and the strengthening of the basic conditions for sustainable development,
the promotion of social justice - in particular, the situation of women - and, finally, the protection of
the natural environment.

139.    Two federal offices are responsible for the planning and practical implementation of the
development aid: the Division for Development and Cooperation (DDC) within the Federal
Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAE), and the Secretariat of State for the Economy (SECO) within
the Federal Department for the Public Economy (DFEP). Their main instruments are technical
cooperation, financial aid, economic and trade measures and humanitarian aid. Action is coordinated
by the DDC.

140.   The Division of Development and Cooperation has three main components. Development
cooperation involves long-term activities and, on this basis, concentrates its bilateral activities in
17 countries of the South, in particular LDCs and NFIDCs, although it also provides support for
programmes in other regions through international organizations.

141.     Humanitarian aid is provided without geographical restrictions or distinctions of nationality,
race, religion, sex or membership of any political or social group. It intervenes directly for shorter
periods so as to provide relief for the victims of conflicts, of crises resulting from them or of natural
disasters. It also supports the activities of humanitarian organizations. Its action takes the form of the
provision of staff through the Swiss Disaster Relief Unit (ASC), financial contributions and deliveries
of foodstuffs.

142.    For its part, the Secretariat of State for the Economy devises the economic and trade measures
for development cooperation: joint financing – involving both the Confederation and Swiss banks –
balance-of-payments aid, trade promotion activities and, in conjunction with the international
community, action on behalf of basic products. SECO is also the main body involved in the strategy
of providing debt relief for the most indebted countries.




UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Reporting period: 1 October 1995 - 30 September 1996 (G/AG/N/USA/7):

143.    The principal source of US financial assistance and funding for technical assistance for

AUSTRALIA
Reporting period: financial year 1995/96 (G/AG/N/AUS/5):

159.     A number of Australian non-government Organizations undertake assistance programmes
with a direct impact on countries' food security. The more well known include Community Aid
Abroad, World Vision, and Care Australia. AusAID also funds projects delivered by NGOs to the
value of $A 2,098,902. Examples of projects undertaken, include a small-scale dairy programme in
Uganda and well-digging in Laos; see Attachment 1 of Annex 3 for a dis-aggregation of country,
project and NGO delivering the programme.

160.    In addition, a number of State and Commonwealth Government agencies sponsor officials
exchanges with a number of countries, including in Australia's immediate region. Outcomes from
these programmes would have incidental effects on participating countries' agriculture.

161.     Australian diplomatic posts are in a position to provide interested parties with more details on
the information and programmes contained above.

Reporting period: financial year 1996/97 (G/AG/N/AUS/13):

162.    Changed arrangements for the allocation and distribution of Australian food aid were trialled
in 1996/97 in a move aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the programme. Under
the new arrangements the total food aid component of Australia's Humanitarian Relief Programme
was allocated directly to the United Nations World Food Programme (whereas in the previous
financial year, for example, only 80 per cent was distributed in this way). In 1996/97 a direct cash
contribution was provided to WFP for a selected group of protracted and emergency relief operations.
These included operations in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Ethiopia and Sudan. This new arrangement gives
WFP a guaranteed level of support for selected operations. At the same time, urgent and unforeseen
requirements for food aid will be considered under the emergency appropriation.

163.     A number of Australian NGOs also undertake assistance programmes which have a direct
impact on recipient countries' food security. The more well known NGOs include Community Aid
Abroad, World Vision, and Care Australia. In 1996/97, AusAID funded projects related to food
security through NGOs to the value of approximately $A 3.823 million. Examples of projects
undertaken through NGOs include Integrated Rural Development Projects in Bangladesh, Botswana
and Cambodia, and a Livestock Rehabilitation Project in Mozambique; see Attachment 2 of Annex 3
for a dis-aggregation of country, project and NGO delivering the programme.

164.    In addition, a number of State and Commonwealth Government agencies also sponsor official
exchanges with a number of countries, including in Australia's immediate region. Outcomes from
these programmes would have incidental effects on participating countries' agriculture and food
security.

new arrangements the total food aid component of Australia's Humanitarian Relief Programme was
allocated directly to the United Nations World Food Programme (whereas in 1995-96, for example,
only 80 per cent was distributed in this way). In 1997-98 a direct cash contribution was provided to
WFP for a selected group of protracted and emergency relief operations. These included operations in
Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Democratic People's Republic of Korea and Sudan. This new arrangement
gives WFP a guaranteed level of support for selected operations. At the same time, urgent and
unforeseen requirements for food aid will be considered under the emergency operation.

166.    A number of Australian NGOs also undertake assistance programmes, which have a direct
impact on recipient countries' food security. During 1997-98 World Vision, the Overseas Service
Bureau, Community Aid Abroad, CARE Australia, UNICEF and the Australian Red Cross were the
major recipients of Australian official aid. In 1997-98 AusAID funded projects related to food
security through NGOs, to LDCs and NFIDCs, to the value of approximately $A 3.9 million.
Examples of projects undertaken through NGOs include Integrated Rural Development Projects in
Bangladesh and Cambodia, and a Livestock Rehabilitation Project in Mozambique (see Attachment 3
of Annex 3).

167.    In addition, a number of State and Commonwealth government agencies and departments also
sponsor official exchanges with a number of countries, including in Australia's immediate region.
Outcomes from these programmes would have incidental effects on participating countries'
agriculture and food security.

These included operations in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Democratic People's Republic of Korea and
Sudan. This new arrangement gives WFP a guaranteed level of support for selected operations. At
the same time, urgent and unforeseen requirements for food aid will be considered under the
emergency operation.

170.    A number of Australian NGOs receive aid programme funding which has a direct impact on

                     CIDA's IHA programme has the following areas for intervention: emergency health and
nutrition, basic education, water and sanitation, shelter, integrated basic human needs and peace building.
Activities in support of agriculture and related programming would likely fall within the integrated basic human
needs component, part of which can be assumed to be targeted at LDC and NFIDCs.

                                             ANNEX 4
 Decision on Measures Concerning the Possible Negative Effects of the Reform Programme on
              Least-Developed and Net Food-Importing Developing Countries

1.      Ministers recognize that the progressive implementation of the results of the Uruguay Round
as a whole will generate increasing opportunities for trade expansion and economic growth to the
benefit of all participants.

2.       Ministers recognize that during the reform programme leading to greater liberalization of
trade in agriculture least-developed and net food-importing developing countries may experience
negative effects in terms of the availability of adequate supplies of basic foodstuffs from external
sources on reasonable terms and conditions, including short-term difficulties in financing normal
levels of commercial imports of basic foodstuffs.

3.      Ministers accordingly agree to establish appropriate mechanisms to ensure that the
implementation of the results of the Uruguay Round on trade in agriculture does not adversely affect
the availability of food aid at a level which is sufficient to continue to provide assistance in meeting
the food needs of developing countries, especially least-developed and net food-importing developing
countries. To this end Ministers agree:

        (i)     to review the level of food aid established periodically by the Committee on Food
                Aid under the Food Aid Convention 1986 and to initiate negotiations in the
                appropriate forum to establish a level of food aid commitments sufficient to meet the
                legitimate needs of developing countries during the reform programme;

        (ii)    to adopt guidelines to ensure that an increasing proportion of basic foodstuffs is
                provided to least-developed and net food-importing developing countries in fully
                grant form and/or on appropriate concessional terms in line with Article IV of the
                Food Aid Convention 1986;

        (iii)   to give full consideration in the context of their aid programmes to requests for the
                provision of technical and financial assistance to least-developed and net food-
                importing developing countries to improve their agricultural productivity and
                infrastructure.

4.      Ministers further agree to ensure that any agreement relating to agricultural export credits
makes appropriate provision for differential treatment in favour of least-developed and net food-
importing developing countries.

5.        Ministers recognize that as a result of the Uruguay Round certain developing countries may
experience short-term difficulties in financing normal levels of commercial imports and that these
countries may be eligible to draw on the resources of international financial institutions under existing
facilities, or such facilities as may be established, in the context of adjustment programmes, in order
to address such financing difficulties. In this regard Ministers take note of paragraph 37 of the report
of the Director-General to the CONTRACTING PARTIES to GATT 1947 on his consultations with the
Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and the President of the World Bank
(MTN.GNG/NG14/W/35).

6.     The provisions of this Decision will be subject to regular review by the Ministerial
Conference, and the follow-up to this Decision shall be monitored, as appropriate, by the Committee
on Agriculture.
                                                                                        G/AG/NG/S/4
                                                                                            Page 189
