Aid for Trade: Promoting Inclusive Growth and Poverty Reduction – Phase 2

The objective of this project is to provide advice on how Aid for Trade can support developing countries to maximise the inclusive growth and poverty reduction impacts of trade. It has three components:

  • An ODI Working Paper titled ‘Trade, Growth and Poverty: Making Aid for Trade Work for Inclusive Growth and Poverty Reduction’, which sets the Aid for Trade context, outlines the linkages between trade, growth and poverty, and suggests how Aid for Trade programming can support trade expansion alongside inclusive growth and poverty reduction.
  • A series of five case studies and a synthesis which seek to identify lessons for policy and programming on removing constraints to trade, enabling inclusive growth and supporting poverty reduction.
  • A ‘Tips and tools for Aid for Trade, inclusive growth and poverty reduction’ series, which provides advice on how to integrate poverty and social analysis into  Aid for Trade programmes.
