Nathan conducted a Regional Agricultural Trade Environment (RATE) assessment of seven ASEAN member countries in 2012. We analyzed the trade environment for agricultural products in each country; explained how that environment affects trade in agricultural commodities and food security; and recommended legal and institutional reforms necessary to improve trade in agricultural products.
The RATE assessment produced 17 reports, 7 on individual countries and 10 on specific topics. All reports promote private sector advocacy and monitoring of reform at the national and regional levels, a central goal of the USAID-funded MARKET project managed by Nathan.
