MetadataShow full item record
Document typeDiscussion paper
Total Official Support for Sustainable Development, or TOSSD, is a new statistical metric that has been in the making for almost 10 years. It is meant to capture a broad range of global flows of public money in support of sustainable development. These include aid, loans on non-concessional terms, and public funds aimed at mobilising private finance for development.
ActionAid, AidWatch Canada and Oxfam are publishing this discussion paper to shed light on how TOSSD works in practice, its ambitions and shortcomings and the range of political perspectives on this new metric.
