Measuring International Public Finance

The Inter-agency Task Force held two technical meetings on questions of measuring international public financing flows and development cooperation efforts, including to discuss the OECD proposal for a new measure of development finance, provisionally called Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD). The meetings provided occasion to discuss critical perspectives on the proposal and to compare and contrast the scope and methodologies behind the proposed TOSSD measure against the monitoring of FfD commitments by the Task Force.
