This article seeks to determine the short to medium-term impact of EU Sugar Protocol reforms on Fiji?s sugar industry. The expected impact on the livelihoods of sugarcane producers, the area remaining under cane, sugar cane output and sugar production are derived under various price scenarios using industry census production data and farm economic survey data collected from 2003 to 2004. The paper also analyses the implications of the expected reduction in the protocol price for the miller?s financial viability. The policy implications of the various impacts are examined.
