UNDP works with the International Trade Center to provide trade intelligence for market identification, including Covid-19 temporary export/import bans. Existing free of charge tools for trade intelligence and in-house training capacity are already in place: trade map, market access map (ITC). Trade and market intelligence will be crucial not only to deal with supply side constraints such as logistical barriers, but also ensuring that national productive capacities can be reactive to changes in global value chains (whether demand or supply side).
