Enhancing Concessional Assistance for a Post-2015 Development Agenda
The aggregate volume of concessional financing flows—comprising of traditional official development assistance (ODA), concessional flows from emerging donors, and private philanthropic flows—to developing countries were at least $220 billion in 2012, of which at least $76 billion went to developing Asia and the Pacific. Traditional ODA still remains the single most important concessional financing for developing countries in general, although estimated private philanthropic flows appear to be more important in the Asian context. ODA-like financing flows from emerging economies remain relatively small.
This paper examines mechanisms whereby different types of concessional flows might be directed to effectively support a common post-2015 development agenda. These include actions that could be taken by providers and by recipients of concessional assistance, as well as the development community as a whole.
