The purpose of this OECD Study is to provide the aid-for-trade community with good practices in designing and introducing results frameworks for aid-for-trade projects, and programmes. We are preparing case studies focusing on Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Rwanda, Solomon Islands and Vietnam.
This publication suggests that improvements in aid for trade reporting can be achieved through introducing a focus on results throughout the programme cycle by means of independent joint evaluations and a greater focus on systematic learning.
On 16-17 January 2013, the OECD Policy Dialogue on Aid for Trade brought together policy makers, practitioners, academics, the private sector and civil society from developed and developing economies to discuss what needs to be done to continue delivering aid for trade results in this changing international environment for trade and development.
We track aid-for-trade flows and share good practice so that developing countries can capitalise on the opportunities of international trade.
