AfT's Impact: How Should We Evaluate?

Abstract

Did the AfT initiative make a difference? It did help to mainstream trade in donor strategies and increase AfT flows. Yet, the initiative was remarkably poor in terms of evaluation mechanisms or even simple guidelines on how to conduct evaluations. We review here key considerations on how to better assess AfT's impact.Did the AfT initiative make a difference? It did help to mainstream trade in donor strategies and increase AfT flows.
