About TOSSD data

TOSSD data are available for activities from 2019 onwards on this website.

TOSSD data are organised in two pillars. Pillar I is dedicated to track cross-border flows to developing countries, while Pillar II tracks regional and global expenditures with substantial benefits to developing countries. In addition, amounts mobilised from the private sector are shown separately.

TOSSD adopts a recipient perspective and data are based on gross disbursements. Further details, e.g. on the providers and amounts committed, are available in the data downloads (see Browse Activities / Export Results)

TOSSD sector data are collected using either CRS or ISIC sector classifications. A mapping enables to display the data according to both classifications but please note that this is approximate as some sectors cannot be easily mapped.

Data presented only include data that comply with the TOSSD Reporting Instructions. As a consequence, these data may not reflect the entirety of a given provider’s co-operation portfolio. In particular, activities in non-TOSSD eligible countries carried out by some providers in the framework of South-South Co-operation do not appear in the export feature of the TOSSD.online visualisation tool, nor in the total financial amounts displayed in the tool.

To know more about TOSSD classifications and methodology, please consult the TOSSD Reporting Instructions  and the TOSSD code list available on TOSSD.org.

What is TOSSD ?

The Total Official Support for Sustainable Development – TOSSD – is a new international statistical framework for monitoring official resources and private finance mobilised by official interventions in support of sustainable development of developing countries.

Notes on the 2020 TOSSD data

The data were updated on 12 April 2022.

A total of 99 providers reported TOSSD data for this second data collection. This includes bilateral providers reporting regularly in the CRS, multilateral providers (the bulk of UN entities, all Multilateral Development Banks but EBRD and the World Bank) and also South-South providers that did not report so far in any international statistical system on development finance (Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Nigeria).

Under « aggregate » as a provider, the data include two sorts of activities, as indicated in their « project descriptions »:

  • Non-concessional flows: semi-aggregates - data on export credits and bilateral non-concessional flows are generally subject to confidentiality restrictions (in total, these data amount to USD 7 billion). Some providers have agreed to the disclosure of this information at activity level.
  • Estimated data gaps: semi-aggregates – data gaps linked to providers reporting to the OECD DAC (Creditor Reporting System) but not to TOSSD have been estimated to facilitate the use and interpretation of TOSSD data (i.e. for Czech Republic, Germany, IMF concessional trust funds, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, EBRD and the World Bank). Estimated data gaps amount to USD 92 billion in total.

Data on the amounts mobilised from the private sector are partially disclosed for confidentiality reasons. More restrictive confidentiality regimes apply to mobilisation data reported in TOSSD by multilateral development banks, following specific provisions included in data-sharing agreements between the OECD and these institutions.

The « source name » indicates the source of the data.

  • TOSSD: activities reported to TOSSD only.
  • CRS-TOSSD: activities reported to both CRS and TOSSD.
  • CRS data used as proxy: activities for reporters that were not able to carry out a special TOSSD reporting exercise in a given year, but that requested their CRS data to be shown in TOSSD for that year’s data, as a proxy.
  • TOSSD estimate: non-ODA share of contributions to multilateral organisations in support of SDGs (Pillar II).
