This electronic publication originates from the OECD annual publication entitled Geographic Distribution of Financial Flows to Aid Recipients. The publication began in 1977, under the title Geographic Distribution of Financial Flows to Developing Countries. The data contained in this publication provides a comprehensive illustration of the volume, origin and types of aid and other resource flows dating from 1960 to 1998.
The data covers: net and gross disbursements, commitments, the sector/purpose allocation of bilateral Official Development Assistance and Official Aid (ODA/OA) commitments, prime indicators for developing countries, and DAC country Deflators (1997 = 100) for over 180 developing countries, territories and countries in transition for the period 1960 until 1998. The aim has been to present a comprehensive record of the external financing of each country shown.
The data are shown for each recipient country by: DAC Member countries (individually or as a group); multilateral agencies (individually or as a group); EC & European Union Members; and major Arab donors.
