One of our key work is to monitor and track aid for environmental purposes. ENVIRONET co-operates with DAC Working Party on Statistics to develop standardised methodologies and maintain data quality.
Our monitoring of aid is primarily done by using statistical “markers”. When OECD donors report their aid activities, they are asked to identify aid activities that contribute to certain environmental purposes. The latest data can be extracted from our database.
Currently, five environment–related markers exist to monitor aid for environmental purposes. In addition, the DAC holds statistics on key sectors relevant to environment.
Markers for biodiversity, desertification and climate change mitigation are often referred as “Rio Markers”, because they are directly relevant to the objectives of Rio Convention – namely UNCBD, UNCCD and UNFCCC. Click here for definitions and and data in Excel format.
