Environmental Regulation and Food Safety: Studies of Protection and Protectionism

By Veena Jha; Edward Elgar | Go to book overview

8. Ways Forward1
Veena JhaTo address the constraints described in the earlier chapters, and on the basis of the findings of the project on Capacity Building for Diversification and Commodity-based Development, a number of policy initiatives can be formulated and implemented. The main challenges that have emerged at the national and regional levels deal with capacity constraints. At the multilateral level, several questions have been raised about standard-setting processes and trade rules. This chapter, therefore, first examines policy responses to capacity problems at the national and regional levels and the initiatives required to deal with the standard-setting processes at the multilateral level. The Doha Declaration, recognizing the importance of complying with these standards, has repeatedly emphasized the technical assistance required in meeting them.
NATIONAL LEVEL
At the national level, a lot of effort has already gone into building infrastructure and disseminating information to improve the safety of specific food sectors in all countries. Export development organizations have already started working towards evolving standards for the quality of foods which are necessary for trade promotion in the export market.2 However, national awareness of the necessity of food safety is yet to be developed in every area of the food growing and processing chain.
Awareness Raising
An awareness programme on food, covering all sectors of food and food-related industries, should be implemented nationally.3
Growers' awareness of methods of lowering costs and raising quality should be increased.4
State assistance should be provided at central collection and processing points to maintain the homogeneity of quality. Governments should establish National Enquiry Points facilitating the flow of timely and reliable information on SPS.
