A bedrock of EIF's work with LDCs is the monitoring and evaluation of the partnership and results. EIF's fresh Theory of Change and outcomes-based efforts aim at empowering LDCs to integrate into global trade networks, and in doing so help to reduce poverty and support sustainable development.

Standard indicators are in place that span the countries where we work, and the collected data looks at trade integration in policy, agricultural production increases, new international markets accessed and more. 

*** Accountability and transparency are central to our work, and EIF publications and guidelines, and EIF's contribution to The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) are publicly available. ***
