Technical Cooperation through the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF)
IEF

The Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) is a multi-donor programme, which assists least-developed countries (LDCs) in their effort to build their productive capacities and play a more active role in the global trading system. The programme is supported by six core partner agencies namely, UNCTAD, ITC, UNDP, IMF,  the World Bank and the WTO, with UNIDO and UNWTO  as an observer agencies.

The main objectives of the EIF are to:

  • Mainstream trade into national development strategies
  • Set up national structure to coordinate the delivery of trade-related technical assistance, and
  • Build capacity to trade, which also includes addressing critical supply-side constraints

Technical assistance activities are tailor-made and demand-driven, and are provided upon request of LDCs or regional organizations.

Main Outputs

  • Advisory services on trade mainstreaming
  • Preparation of Diagnostic Trade Integration Studies (DTIS)
  • Implementation of technical cooperation projects as a follow up to DTIS
