This report evaluates food security issues in Turkey. A country commodity model for Turkey was developed and connected with FAPRI world agricultural commodity price projections. The authors begin with a review of Turkey's macroeconomic and agricultural policies from 1960 to 1997. Then they outline a theoretical framework for the econometric model, explain the components of the analytical system, and present results of baseline and tariff reduction scenarios from the analytical system.
