Development resource flows

Hide / Show Abstract

Development resource flows includes measuring the inflow of resources to recipient countries through: bilateral official development assistance (ODA); grants; concessional and non-concessional development lending by multilateral financial institutions; and other official flows, including refinancing loans, that are considered to be for development purposes, but which have too low a grant element to qualify as ODA.
