EIF has a results-based management agenda that means its outcomes are accountable, transparent and impact-oriented. The programme continues to improve its ability to measure results, and has standard indicators that span its funding portfolio to assess trade development across the countries where EIF works.

Data is collected at the country level and aggregated, and project monitoring looks at the evidence while always innovating and learning.

Accountability and transparency to the EIF partnership are pivotal. EIF policies and reports, guidelines and templates, and EIF's contribution to The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) are publicly available.
