Financing International Public Goods: A Framework to Address Aid for Trade

Working paper

Written by Dirk Willem te Velde

Working paper

While the literatures on aid for trade and (financing) international public goods (IPGs) have largely developed separately, linking both areas has implications for the way we think about aid for trade, both in terms of justifying the allocation of resources on trade-related programs and in terms of the financial architecture for aid for trade. In this context, it is important to differentiate between the types of trade-related projects and programs. Such projects will have different degrees of international ‘publicness’ which, therefore, need different types of approaches.
