Aid-for-Trade Global Review 2024 Monitoring and Evaluation Exercise: “Mainstreaming Trade”
The next Aid-for-Trade Global Review, “Mainstreaming Trade”, will be held at the WTO in Geneva in mid-2024. The Review is influential in highlighting areas where developing and least developed countries (LDCs) need support to overcome supply-side constraints limiting their participation in global trade. It helps galvanize support to address these issues so that developing countries derive maximum benefit from trade.
Underpinning the Review is a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) exercise. By completing the M&E self-assessment questionnaire, you will be supporting efforts led by the WTO to promote transparency with respect to:
- the supply side and trade-related infrastructure constraints of developing countries, and in particular least developing countries;
- the provision of Aid -for -Trade support by development partners;
- how Aid -for -Trade support is aligned with priority needs;
- the impact and outcomes of Aid -for -Trade support; and
- future needs for Aid -for -Trade support.
Understanding Aid for Trade's contribution to food security, digital connectivity and the opportunities that mainstreaming trade in national development strategies offer to meet multiple targets in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda will be a particular focus of the M&E exercise underpinning the Review.
To collect relevant information, self-assessment questionnaires are being circulated to donors (bilateral and multilateral agencies), regional economic communities/transport corridors, South-South partners and developing and least-developed countries.
Responses to the questionnaires will be analysed, with conclusions drawn in a joint publication by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the WTO: “Aid for Trade at a Glance 2024: Mainstreaming Trade”. The publication will also feature contributions from other international organizations. The publication will be launched and discussed at the 2024 Global Review.
The deadline for submission of completed questionnaires is Friday, 5 January 2024.
