Assistance to notify the categories
With a view to ensuring that assistance is available for the notification of categories A, B and C commitments the TFAF will, inter alia, continue to administer the WTO Needs Assessment Program. This program assists developing and LDC Members to identify their needs in order to implement the Agreement, including self-determining the time that would be needed to implement each provision and its technical assistance needs.
Assistance and support for capacity building
The TFAF will seek to ensure that WTO Members fully understand the Agreement, the steps needed for its implementation, and the requirements to benefit from the special and differential treatment provisions. To this end, it will make available training materials, case studies, and best practices.
The TFAF will provide two types of grants to developing and LDC Members notifying Category C commitments. Members may apply for these grants where no other funding source is available to meet their needs.
