Abstract

This paper attempts to clarify the meaning of "policy" in the context of food and agriculture through a simple classification with examples. It is hoped that such a classification will facilitate comparisons of methodology and results of the various efforts to use formal systems analytic methods to evaluate policy.

It is not likely that any specific systems analytic model will be sufficiently general to embrace the range of food and agriculture policies discussed. Nevertheless, in model construction it may be prudent to anticipate the need to evaluate policies other than the specific ones for which the model is intended. A classification may thus also assist in anticipating subsequent modification of a specific policy-evaluation model by taking into account common elements of a larger set of policies at the time of initial model construction.
