How much support is provided to developing countries to help them reach their Sustainable Development Goals? As of today, no one knows. There is no international statistical standard to measure and track those resources. To fill this gap, providers and recipients of development cooperation are working together to develop a new measure – Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD).
During the session, the speakers will present the TOSSD framework and the pilot studies conducted in developing countries. Emphasis will be put on the ways in which TOSSD can be an asset in the fight against inequalities. The presentations will be followed by a panel and a Q&A session with the audience.
