DAC statistics are primarily designed to measure donor effort. The following note describes the OECD DAC’s methodology for calculating imputed multilateral flows, that is imputing aid by multilateral bodies back to the funders of these bodies so that total donor outflows that can be assigned to an individual recipient.
The DAC List of ODA Recipients is designed for statistical purposes. It helps to measure and classify aid and other resource flows originating in donor countries.

Innovative financing for development refers to initiatives that aim to raise new funds for development, or optimise the use of traditional funding sources. They aim to narrow the gap between the resources needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and the resources actually available.
In the context of the current global financial crisis, remittances represent an important source of finance for many developing countries, especially as they tend to rise during downturns in the receiving economy – unlike capital flows such as foreign direct investment, which tend to fall.
In parallel with ODA, export credits extended by official-export credit agencies also help finance large-scale projects in key sectors such as infrastructure, especially when they are perceived as economically viable.
