Aid for Trade Programme

About the Aid for Trade Programme

ICTSD’s programme on aid for trade seeks to provide critical analysis, evidence-based knowledge and policy discussions aimed ultimately at enhancing the effectiveness of trade-related development assistance in enabling developing and least developed countries to build the capacity to produce and trade competitively in global markets and thus participate more fully in the international trading system. Through its research and analysis, the programme intends to contribute to the policy debate surrounding the aid for trade initiative with the aim of promoting structural transformation and pursuing sustainable development through an effective utilization of aid for trade resources.

The programme focuses on the following main areas: aid for trade monitoring and evaluation; aid for trade and global value chains; aid for trade and climate change.
