Published on December 13, 2018

WTO___WB.JPGTrade and Poverty Reduction: New Evidence of Impacts in Developing Countries is a report by the World Trade Organization in collaboration with the World Bank Group. The report details the challenges and opportunities in maximizing the impact of trade openness for the poor. It shows the need to continue to focus on reducing high trade transaction costs faced by poor workers and consumers in developing countries, and it explains how the benefits of trade can vary between rural and urban families, and between women and men. The papers in this collection also demonstrate the value of different research methods to understand links between trade and poverty, while also highlighting areas for further research and for testing new analytical methods.
