Membership of WTO Members in Plurilaterals or Joint Initiatives

Map of the Month 11/2021

So-called plurilateral initiatives are discussions at the WTO in which only a part of its members are participating. They can i.a. aim at creating new rules or liberalising tariffs. Given the very difficult discussions on a multilateral level, in plurilateral initiatuves have been considered by many WTO members as crucial to reinvigorate trade cooperation at the WTO. Ongoing or concluded plurilateral initiatives focus on services domestic regulations, e-commerce, MSMEs, trade and gender, investment facilitation, environmental goods and government procurement. In addition - given that the WTO Appellate Body is currently blocked - 52 WTO members have agreed on a Multi-party interim appeal arbitration agreement (MPIA) which is an alternative system for resolving WTO disputes that are appealed by a WTO Member. As the map of the month map demonstrates, the vast majority of WTO members participates in at least one plurilateral initiative, some are taking part in all current plurilaterals.

COVAX Deliveries: vaccine donations as a percentage of the population in recipient countries.

Map of the Month 09/2021

September's map of the month illustrates how many COVAX vaccine donations were delivered to recipient countries by the end of September. The COVAX Facility, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi, and the World Health Organization (WHO), advocates for rapid, fair, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines around the world. Since the first international shipment to Ghana on February 24, 2021, the COVAX Facility has already delivered over 313 mln. doses of COVID-19 vaccine to 145 territories. Due to a lack of donations, the COVAX Facility will not reach its original 2021 goal of 2 billion doses until early next year. However, the revised target of 1.2 bln. doses, which will be reached by the end of this year, is sufficient to protect 20% of the population, or 40% of all adults, in all but one recipient country.

COVAX mechanisms: vaccine dose sharing from national stockpile & advance market commitment (AMC)

Map of the Month 08/2021

The COVAX facility, co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi, and the World Health Organization (WHO), consists of several parallel mechanisms to increase rapid, fair, and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines across the world. The Map of the Month of August visualizes the donor countries' contributions to two different structures via which the COVAX initiative obtains and distributes vaccines to the eligible 92 low- and middle-income economies. While COVAX allows for dose sharing from a donor country's existing national supply, the COVAX Advance Market Commitment (AMC) mechanism raised funds from high- and low-income countries and worked with pharmaceutical partners before successful vaccine development and continues to pool financial resources so that doses can be produced and procured at scale as soon as vaccines receive regulatory approval.
