Final Evaluation of the Regional Trade Facilitation and Border Management Activity
The Regional Trade Facilitation and Border Management (RTFB) Activity is a five-year activity (2018 - 2023) that seeks to improve regional trade efficiency in the Northern Central American (NCA) countries of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. By enhancing regional integration and improving trade facilitation, the Activity seeks to increase cross-border trade and thus contribute to broad-based economic growth in the region.
USAID/El Salvador contracted USAID LEAP III to conduct a final evaluation of the RTFB Activity to determine 1) which RTFB interventions are perceived as most effective for enhancing regional trade integration, and why; 2) which interventions are perceived as most effective for increasing regional trade competitiveness, and why; and 3) whether RTFB interventions have contributed to overall regional economic growth.
The purpose of this evaluation is to analyze key stakeholder perceptions, performance data, and secondary document review to understand what is working well, not working well, and areas for improvement for the final year of the RTFB Activity and to inform future activity design.
