Ahead of WTO Public Forum: EIF Executive Director Ratnakar Adhikari on how Sweden’s flexible funding makes a difference

08 Oct 2019

Today the WTO Public Forum kicks off in Geneva. During four days participants will reflect on and discuss this year’s theme: “Trading forward- Adapting to a changing world”. Responding to emerging priorities requires flexibility. Sweden is a key donor of flexible funding, also called unearmarked core funding. Today we meet Executive Director of the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) Mr Ratnakar Adhikari in our series of interviews on the importance of flexible funding. Why is unearmarked funding so important in the future and what has Sweden’s unearmarked aid achieved? How do EIF and Sweden together better position the least developed countries (LDCs) in the global economy?
