The GSI's method for quantifying irrigation subsidies

By Ravinder Malik, Chris Charles (Editor) on January 20, 2009
This discussion paper sets out an initial method for assessing irrigation subsidies. The method draws on the main components of the Net Cost to the Supplier approach, which focuses on measuring the identifiable government on-budget expenditure, in attempting to calculate irrigation subsidization. The long-term aim of developing the paper is to move towards a consistent and internationally accepted method for measuring irrigation subsidy intensities.
