As part of the Lome Convention the STABEX programme is one of the instruments of the European Union's development policy. Its objective is to reduce the instability of the agricultural export earnings of the developing countries which signed the agreement. By working on a commodity-by-commodity basis, this paper provides an empirical evaluation of the effects.

    1. According to the STABEX regulation, payments can be claimed for goods in which, during the year preceding the claim, the concerned country suffered a 5 % loss (4% in the case of sisal) in total export proceeds, after trade with all destination countries had been completed. 2. A system for stabilizing export receipts (Stabex) was created to ensure regular revenues for ACP countries; and sugar produced by ACP countries enjoyed the guarantees of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), up to a cap established every five years.

The Stabex scheme has for a decade been internal to the EEC-ACP cooperation arrangements. It has transferred about ECU 1 billion to 48 ACP countries, though with heavy concentration on a few. Designed to address fluctuations in individual commodity earnings (now exclusively agricultural exports), it differs from the IMF scheme for compensatory.

The Stabex system was not designed to stabilise unstable commodity prices. Its purpose is confined to mitigating the ill effects of losses of export earnings by the ACP States when there is a fall in world prices and/or in exports.

The term "export revenue" is used in the definition "export revenue percentage" in subsection (1). "export revenue percentage" "Export revenue percentage" of a person is determined by dividing the person’s total export revenue for a year (as defined in subsection (1)) by the person’s specified total revenue for the year, also as defined in that subsection.

Through the STABEX system, it stabilized export earnings for single-export countries in hard times, thus establishing a harmonious and stable relation between producers and users of raw materials.

This mechanism offsets the loss in export revenues suffered for each one of the 49 commodities, mainly agricultural products, listed in the Convention and. (b) Stabilisation in the Stabex system is directed towards the product-linked revenue of ACP countries' exports to the EC (Art) and, as a special arrangement for (at present) 13 ACP countries, towards the total of product-linked export earnings of these particular countries (Art.

Many countries, especially in Africa, derive more than 90% of their export earnings from commodities.
