Capacity building

 

Of the 269 case stories, 66 were concerned with efforts to up-grade the skills of the public sector. The stories related to capacity building tend to cluster around three types of technical assistance projects:


i)  efforts at the global, regional, and county level to create knowledge and capacities to help countries integrate trade more fully into the national development programmes,
ii) government assistance to improve trade policy formulation or to help with trade negotiations,
iii) efforts to help governments understand and implement specific trade-related laws and regulations, including new intellectual property regimes.
