Collaboration for a Global Good
Critical to the success of Market Access Map is the goodwill and precious cooperation of national customs, statistics institutions and regional trade secretariats that provide the majority of the data available through the application for the collective benefit of all our users.
The coverage of Market Access Map is further augmented with information provided by other  supporting agencies, including:
The United Nation Statistical Division (UNSD) Commodity Trade (UN COMTRADE) Data Base that contains exports and imports by commodity and partner country. For more information, see UN COMTRADE
The World Trade Organization's (WTO)  Integrated Data Base (IDB) that contain imports by commodity and partner country and MFN applied and where available preferential tariffs, at the most detailed commodity level of the national tariffs. The Consolidated Tariff Schedule Data Base (CTS) contains WTO Bound Tariffs, Initial Negotiating Rights (INR) and other indicators. The CTS reflects the concessions made by countries during goods negotiations.
The Transparency in Trade (TNT) initiative is a multi-year program with five major components: (i) online tools—MAcMap and WITS (providing access to trade and trade barrier information); (ii) tariff data collection; (iii) NTMs data collection; (iv) trade remedies collection; and (v) policies affecting trade in services. Under this program:
  • The African Development Bank contributes in the area of NTM data collection, capacity building and dissemination in the African region. In order to make the data collection effort self-sustained and to provide a continuously updated database AfDB collaborates with various regional agencies in the Africa region.
  • ITC leads in collecting tariff data; contributes to collection of data on NTMs and further enhances Market Access Map.
  • UNCTAD leads in coordinating the collection of NTMs data, working with the other partners to divide the burden of this effort; maintains and updates the TRAINS/WITS database; and provides training and technical assistance to improve capacity in developing countries, economies in transition and their regional organizations to collect and use these data.
  • The World Bank leads in collecting data on anti-dumping, safeguards, countervailing duties, and on services trade policies, and works with partners to further enhance the WITS application.
A number of additional donors have also helped build the foundations upon which Market Access Map rests today.
