- PreviewMaking Trade Work for Least Developed Countries: a Handbook on Mainstreaming Trade (English)Report by UNCTAD, 2016, 106 pagesCategories: Globalization and Development Strategies, Trade and Poverty
This handbook is the outcome of the workshops and research conducted under the project. It draws lessons from the experiences of the six countries that participated and provides fresh insights on how to design and implement an effective trade strategy in LDCs. It also provides clarity on the concept of mainstreaming trade and identifies criteria on how to measure success in this endeavour. The handbook should be useful to policymakers in developing countries, development analysts, academics, and students of development. In this regard, it is meant to be a guide to policy formulation and implementation in LDCs, with the understanding that its application will vary from country to country because of differences in economic structure, history, and social and political realities.
