La transmission de l'instabilité des prix agricoles internationaux et ses conséquences dans les pays en développement

Abstract : One of the biggest threats farmers in developing countries face is the fall of world agricultural commodity prices. Indeed, a large part of farmers revenues relies on world prices. As they can not anticipate world price fluctuations, they can not make efficient decisions of production. Moreover, they are widely exposed to price instability and have little ability to cope with big shocks, which makes them more vulnerable. This thesis aims to analyze how the variations of world prices are transmitted to producers prices in developing countries, and estimate the impact of world price instability on agricultural supply and poverty. The chapters can be read independently. Chapters 1, 2 and 3 are devoted to the study of the mechanisms of price transmission. Chapters 4 and 5 provide an analysis of the consequences of world price instability on agricultural supply and poverty level.
