The main features of technical cooperation activities of UNCTAD in the year 2000 were its emphasis on capacity-building; its closer interaction with research and deliberative work; a continuation of focus on least developed countries; and an increased level of contributions. Activities of certain programmes and projects were extended to other countries and regions, although the pattern of geographical distribution for overall activities remained more or less unchanged. Total resources available for operational activities amounted to more than US$27 million, reflecting a 22 per cent increase over 1999, thanks to a substantial increase in contributions to trust funds, from both developed and developing countries, and allotments received for implementation of four new projects under the Development Account. Pledges for multi-year contributions to trust funds from an increasing number of donors facilitated planning of activities for 2001 and beyond. Expenditures overall decreased slightly to US$24.1 million of which around 43 per cent was directed towards the least developed countries. A number of new important projects became operational. The major programmes of technical cooperation in order of expenditures were ASYCUDA, trade logistics, trade negotiations and commercial diplomacy, DMFAS, and investment issues analysis. Activities in favour of least developed countries focused on the preparatory process for LDC III and the initiative on the new implementation arrangements of the Integrated Framework. The DMFAS advisory group was set up and decided on the establishment of a DMFAS trust fund. Cooperation with other organizations continued to develop satisfactorily. UNCTAD provisional guidelines on cooperation with the private sector have been prepared. Progress was also made regarding the implementation of paragraph 166 of the UNCTAD X Plan of Action. An in-depth evaluation of the TRAINMAR programme was carried out. Annex I of this Report provides a programme-by-programme review of activities undertaken in 2000. Annex II contains statistical information on UNCTAD technical cooperation
