Accessing the International Development Statistics online databases (IDS online)


The International Development Statistics databases (updated on 13 April 2016) cover bilateral and multilateral aid (ODA), private providers’ aid and other resource flows to developing countries.  Data are presented under three sub-themes:

  • Flows by provider”:  volume, origin and types of aid and other resource flows;
  • Flows by provider and recipient”: historical and forward-looking data on volume, origin and destination of resource flows;
  • Flows based on individual projects (CRS)”: detailed information on individual aid activities, such as sectors, countries, project descriptions etc. used to derive aggregate data.

Find more information about these databases, other thematic datasets, popular queries and bulk downloads on our IDS online page.
