Technical assistance

Strengthening the technical and institutional capacities of countries to produce and use market information is an essential component of AMIS. To this end, AMIS promotes international best practice and helps improve methodologies for data production, access and use.

The AMIS Secretariat provides technical assistance in various forms, for example by regularly reviewing and discussing with focal points the monthly balances submitted to the Secretariat, or by organizing country visits to stimulate inter-agency collaboration. Selected focal points have also worked together with the AMIS Secretariat as "Visiting Experts" in the framework of the AMIS Exchange Programme. Technical assistance has equally been provided through larger-scale capacity building projects.
