Transition Finance


Work on ‘Transition finance’ recently launched by the DAC/OECD aims to better understand financing challenges and opportunities faced by countries as they move along the development continuum. It includes an analysis of dynamics affecting domestic and external flows as countries transition, including official development finance, remittances, philanthropy and private investment, with the ultimate objective of defining the right policy and financing mixes that will ensure long-term effects and resilience of support, as well as maximise the  contribution of development finance to the SDGs. It combines methodological papers, tools for transitioning countries and their partners, and country pilots.

Methodology and main findings

This working paper is currently being finalised and will be added here early 2019.

Countries most in need

Because ODA is a scarce resource for financing development, it is important to ensure it reaches the countries and people that need it most. The DAC is keen to promote a more effective distribution of ODA in line with international commitments and pledges designed to ensure that no country -- including least developed countries (LDCs), low-income countries (LICs), small island developing states (SIDS), land-locked developing countries (LLDCs) and fragile and conflict-affected states – is left behind.
