The Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF)
supporting Least Developed Countries to develop trade
The EIF is a multi-donor programme, which supports LDCs to be more active players in the global trading system by helping them tackle supply-side constraints to trade. In this way, the programme works towards a wider goal of promoting economic growth and sustainable development and helping to lift more people out of poverty.
The programme is currently helping 46 LDCs worldwide and two recently graduated countries, supported by a multi-donor trust fund, the EIF Trust Fund, with contributions from 23 donors. EIF graduating LDCs can also continue to access EIF funding for an additional three years after they graduate. A high-level pledging event in 2007 set a funding target of US$250 million over five years – and both additional and ongoing contributions are being sought.
