An international Task Force has been established to elaborate the statistical features of the new measurement framework of Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD) and prepare a first set of Reporting Instructions.
Following the call at the Third International conference on Financing for Development, the OECD has been working with the international community to devise the statistical framework of Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD). TOSSD will track all financing provided by official bilateral and multilateral institutions – regardless of the level of concessionality involved or instrument used. It will also capture private resources that are mobilised through official means.
Work to develop TOSSD is now being taken forward in coordination with relevant UN bodies to establish TOSSD as an international statistical standard against which official bilateral and multilateral institutions and South-South providers will be able to report SDG-relevant resource flow data going forward. As a first step, a special TOSSD Task Force has been established to further elaborate the features of TOSSD and prepare a first set of Reporting Instructions. Agreement in 2019 on the scope and method of TOSSD reporting will enable the integration of TOSSD in the SDG monitoring framework in 2020.
