UNCTAD´s INFOCOMM programme, launched in 2001, provides analyses on international commodities markets for policy makers in developing countries, for universities, for financial institutions and for the general public. INFOCOMM is a multilingual electronic portal organized under ten headings ranging from product characteristics and crop value to export markets and prices; it aims to provide accessible, reliable, and updated commodity market information. It also includes links to major product organizations, international research groups, and universities. In addition, monthly newsletters from authoritative sources on commodity information are available to INFOCOMM users. INFOCOMM is currently consulted by 12 to 15 million people worldwide, 60% of them in developing countries.
