The first is to provide UNDP’s perspective on the initiative and outline some concerns that may constrain the success of AfT as a vehicle for supporting a development-centred trade agenda in developing countries. And second, to identify the main elements of UNDP’s support in the operationalisation of AfT. 2. U N D P ’ S A S S E S S M E N T O F T H E A I D F O R T R A D E I N I T I A T I V E AND EARLY CONCERNS As previously noted, UNDP’s initial assessment of the aid for trade initiative was that its main elements were not new.

But the specific procedures for accessing AfT resources by developing countries have yet to be determined. For example, it is not clear whether these countries will be required to follow some diagnostic method for assessing, establishing and costing their needs and priorities. It is also not clear which donor or group of donors will respond to which country and how to ensure equity between countries in the allocation of funds. Further, it is not clear whether priority will be given to specific groups of countries such as LDCs and small vulnerable economies (SVEs) – two categories of developing countries recognised at the WTO – or whether allocation will be on first come first served basis.

This calculation was reached as follows: actual expenditure on inter-country projects concerning exclusively LDCs; plus for all other inter-country projects, 30% of interregional project expenditure; 60% of project expenditure in Africa; and 20% of project expenditure in Asia and the Pacific, and 5% of project expenditure in Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Arab States.
