Aid for trade 10 years on: keeping it effective is a 2015 document, published by the OECD.

Ten years after the 2005 WTO Ministerial Conference agreed on a mandate to operationalize aid for trade, this paper assesses the achievements and challenges of the WTO-led Initiative.

After outlining the achievements, the paper discusses where to put the emphasis, how to expand partnerships, how to enhance effectiveness; and most, importantly, how to retain interest in using aid to make trade work for the poor.
