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.

Hide / Show Abstract

Private flows are defined as financial flows at market terms financed out of private sector resources (changes in holdings of private, long-term assets held by residents of the reporting country) and private grants (grants by non-government organisations, net of subsidies received from the official sector). Private capital flows can be divided into: foreign direct investment; portfolio equity (the buying and selling of stocks and shares); remittances sent home by migrants; and private sector borrowing. This indicator is measured in million USD constant prices, using 2014 as the base year.
