An international Task Force has been established to elaborate the statistical features of the new measurement framework of Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD) and prepare a first set of Reporting Instructions.

Following the call at the Third International conference on Financing for Development, the OECD has been working with the international community to devise the statistical framework of Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD). TOSSD will track all financing provided by official bilateral and multilateral institutions – regardless of the level of concessionality involved or instrument used. It will also capture private resources that are mobilised through official means.

 

Work to develop TOSSD is now to be taken forward in close association with relevant UN bodies (the UN Statistical Commission and the Inter-Agency Task Force on Financing for Development) to establish TOSSD as an international statistical standard against which official bilateral and multilateral institutions and South-South providers will be able to report SDG-relevant resource flow data going forward. As a first step, a special TOSSD Task Force has been established to further elaborate the features of TOSSD and prepare a first set of Reporting Instructions. Agreement in 2018 on the scope and method of TOSSD reporting, in particular for the cross-border flow pillar, will enable TOSSD data to contribute to international reporting on SDG implementation at the UN-hosted High Level Political Forum in 2019.
