Volltext/Full text

This paper outlines a proposal for a needs assessment process, drawing on the experiences of the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) and recent pilot needs assessments in the context of a research project conducted by the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS). This report is part of a series of background papers written in the context of a project by the International Trade Centre (ITC) and IDOS on “Investment Facilitation for Development.” The project supports the negotiations on a multilateral framework on investment facilitation for development by building negotiation capacity in developing (including least developed) countries, channeling ground-level and analytical expertise to negotiators and promoting public discussions of issues related to investment facilitation for development.
