El STDF responde a las necesidades de los países en desarrollo en capacidad sanitaria y fitosanitaria

Según una evaluación independiente publicada el 17 de julio de 2019, el Fondo para la Aplicación de Normas y el Fomento del Comercio (STDF) responde a las necesidades de los países en desarrollo mejorando su capacidad para cumplir las normas sanitarias y fitosanitarias (MSF) y aprovechar las oportunidades comerciales. En el informe se presentan los resultados obtenidos por el STDF en los cinco últimos años.

 

The evaluation, carried out by Nathan Associates, says that “the STDF and the STDF Secretariat have delivered outputs and results beyond what might be expected given their budget and resources”.

 

During the STDF Policy Committee meeting held on 17 June at the WTO, chaired by WTO Deputy Director-General Alan Wolff, WTO members reviewed the evaluation’s recommendations to scale up the added value and impact of the Facility.

 

A new STDF strategy, drawing upon the recommendations, is due to be launched at the end of 2019.

 

The STDF is a global partnership that helps developing countries to gain and maintain access to markets by tackling SPS knowledge and capacity gaps, promoting food safety, animal and plant health. It works to support sustainable economic growth, poverty reduction, food security and environmental protection.

 

The WTO houses the STDF Secretariat and is among the five founding partners, along with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization (WHO).
