Working with LMC International, OPM undertook a study for DFID to provide an assessment of the likely economic and social impacts of preference erosion on African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) beneficiaries of the Sugar Protocol, considering different options for assistance strategies to address these impacts. The study was used by DFID to lobby the European Commission and EU member states. OPM’s contribution to the study focused on considering the options for assistance strategies for ACP beneficiaries of the Sugar Protocol. We presented the findings at a seminar for Whitehall officials.
