The OECD DAC measures and monitors development finance targeting the environment using the environment marker. Introduced in 1992, this predates the Rio markers. Reporting on ODA flows has been mandatory since 1998. Reporting on non-credit OOF flows was introduced in 2010 on a voluntary basis.
In collaboration with the Statistics and Development Finance Division of the DCD-OECD, ISDB has mapped its financial instruments to the OECD-DAC's reporting system.
Development aid rose by 6.1% in real terms in 2013 to reach the highest level ever recorded, despite continued pressure on budgets in OECD countries since the global economic crisis. Donors provided a total of USD 134.8 billion in net official development assistance (ODA), marking a rebound after two years of falling volumes, as a number of governments stepped up their spending on foreign aid.
This publication provides comprehensive data on the volume, origin and types of aid and other resource flows to around 150 developing countries.
