FAO/WHO Codex Trust Fund

Between 2004 and 2015, the FAO/WHO Project and Fund for Enhanced Participation in Codex (Codex Trust Fund) supported over 2300 participants from developing and transition economy countries to participate in the international standard development process, and provided FAO/WHO Codex training to over 1200 people to boost the effectiveness of their participation in the Codex Alimentarius Commission. Building on the success of the first Codex Trust Fund, FAO and WHO are launching a successor initiative to the Codex Trust Fund (CTF2) in January 2016.

Focus of CTF2

CTF2 will shift the focus from widening participation in Codex, to building strong, solid and sustainable national capacity to engage in Codex.
