The 2013 report Aid for Trade at a Glance: Connecting to Value Chains analyses the strategies, priorities, and programmes from the public and private sectors in developing and developed countries to connect developing country suppliers to value chains. The publication was launched at the 8-10 July 4th Global Review of Aid for Trade at WTO in Geneva and can be read on OECD iLibrary.
On the occasion of the 4th Global Review of Aid for Trade, the OECD and the WTO, in collaboration with GrowAfrica; the International Chamber of Commerce; the International Trade Center; the International Telecommunications Union; and the United Nations World Tourism Organization, conducted a survey among the private sector to identify the barriers that suppliers in developing countries face in connecting to value chains.
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 based on country-defined quantifiable targets and a menu of limited number of indicators to measure performance (i.e. outcomes and impacts). We have prepared case studies focusing on Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Rwanda, Solomon Islands and Vietnam.
The OECD Multi-dimensional Country Reviews are underpinned by a conceptual framework which promotes a holistic conception of development, advocates policy advice based on a diagnostic approach, and which requires issues to be examined from multiple dimensions rather than along sectoral lines.

With 7 billion people in the world today and 9 billion by 2050, we must invest in development that will meet the growing demands for food, water and energy. The new OECD publication Putting Green Growth at the Heart of Development suggests that these investments could define a path for inclusive growth and sustainable development by focusing on people’s needs and prospects while respecting the environment.
This publication explains why green growth is vital to secure a more sustainable future for developing countries. Covering 74 policies and measures from 37 countries and 5 regional initiatives, this publication outlines an action-oriented twin-track agenda to guide national and international policies and practices to successfully tackle green growth.
