The OECD DAC Principles aim to help ensure that donors engage using a policy framework that is fit for purpose. Whether a donor is looking to begin a blending programme or already has one, the OECD DAC Principles should be used to test assumptions about how blending is currently being undertaken on critically important aspects such as the engagement of local capital markets, the use of concessionality as a precondition to blending, or the provision of monitoring and evaluation mechanisms.Cross-cutting/Other (please specify below): Principles and dialoguehttps://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainable-development/development-f....OECDTotal Official Support for Sustainable DevelopmentTOSSD aims to complement ODA by increasing transparency and monitoring important new trends that are shaping the international development finance landscape, including: i) the leveraging/catalytic effect of ODA, ii) the use of blended finance packages, and iii) the use of innovative risk mitigation instruments in development co-operation.
