South Centre participates in WTO Aid for Trade Global Review

South Centre participated in the first Global Review on Aid for Trade, organized by the WTO, in Geneva on 20 and 21 November.

The Review aimed at taking stock of how much trade-related aid is being delivered, for which specific purposes, and how successful such aid has been. A workshop, which preceded the Review, also provided a platform for the discussion of technical elements related to the implementation of an Aid for Trade Global Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanism. South Centre will continue to work on Aid for Trade, aiming particularly at strengthening developing countries' capacity to better articulate their aid needs and to engage effectively in a Global Evaluation mechanism.
