The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) provides multilateral technical cooperation through the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), a multi-donor programme, that assists the least developed countries (LDCs) in their efforts to build productive capacities and play a more active role in the global trading system. Among the technical assistance tools used by UNCTAD and EIF are the Diagnostic Trade Integration Studies (DTIS), which  identify constraints on trade integration and are used to develop a national consensus on and action plans to address such hindrances.
