At a time when aid budgets are under pressure and scrutiny, there is a need to improve
accountability. This is especially true in the case of aid for trade, which has become
an increasingly important priority in development co-operation. Strengthening Accountability
in Aid for Trade looks at what the trade and development community needs to know about
aid-for-trade results, what past evaluations of programmes and projects reveal about
trade outcomes and impacts, and how the trade and development community could improve
the performance of aid for trade interventions.
