Free Trade and Sustainable Agriculture in the Caribbean

This paper explores the possibilities of achieving sustainable development in the Caribbean in a free trade environment. The trade and agricultural dimensions of the changing internatinal economic framework are juxtaposed against the model of sustainable development. Particular attention is paid to international trade agreements that define the Caribbean's economic relationship with the rest of the world. The agricultural sector performance in the Caribbean in the 1980s is evaluated and lessons for achieving sustainable development through increased trade are derived.
