The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 37 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.
The OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate (TAD), in line with the strategic objectives of the Secretary-General, provides relevant and timely information, analysis and advice in support of governments’ efforts to improve the domestic and international performance of their trade, agriculture, food and fishery policies and to maintain the orderly use of export credits.
The Agriculture and Resource Policy Division (TAD/ARP) works across four main areas of food and agriculture policy, mainstreaming sustainability concerns throughout: monitoring and evaluating policy developments, undertaking in-depth country reviews, with a particular focus on innovation, productivity and sustainability of agriculture; analysing policy alternatives related to climate change, water and resilience in agriculture; and exploring innovation and digitalisation policies, and their potential impacts on food and agriculture. TAD/ARP’s work involves a mix of analytical and policy-oriented research conducted in a dynamic, multicultural environment by a team of highly-qualified and experienced staff.
The Agriculture and Resource Policy Division is looking for one or possibly more agricultural economists to analyse a wide range of policies affecting the performance of agriculture and food. The selected candidate(s) will make a strategic contribution to the analytical priorities of the Division as well as to contribute to corporate priorities and the Directorate’s other responsibilities. S/He will report to the Head of Division.
