Abstract This case study describes the tension between liberalisation of a non-level playing field and the impact this has on farmers and the ecological conditions of Burkina Faso and Tanzania. These countries are to shape their sustainable agricultural development policies whilst confronted with unfair competition from Europe. The report discusses the specific developmental problems faced by Burkina Faso and Tanzania, and looks at how EU trade policies affect the livelihoods of farmers in these countries, and how these policies could influence the environment. Special attention will be given to the effect of European (export) subsidies in these countries. The case study is part of a series produced by IUCN-National Committee of the Netherlands (IUCN NL) and Both ENDS to provide more insight into the relationships that exist between economic policy (such as trade and investment policies), the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in poor countries, and halting the loss of biodiversity. Each case describes a specific example, and offers recommendations on how to move forward. The cases are intended to support the current discussions worldwide on how globalisation can benefit all life on earth.
