    Achieving Agenda 2030: Trends in the allocation of TOSSD resources towards leaving no one behind, A review of 2021 TOSSD data for the Sustainable Development Goals

    The Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD) statistical framework “is designed to provide a coherent, comparable and unified system for tracking resources for sustainable development that can inform strategic planning, identify emerging gaps and priorities, and assess progress in matching supply with needs.” In a dramatically changing financing landscape, TOSSD is intended to deliver greater transparency in the financing of sustainable development, including both concessional and non-concessional official resources as well as mobilized private flows that are reported separately, from a broad scope of providers, north and south. The framework requires data on the specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets “that the activity directly and significantly contributes to,” where “no substantial detrimental effect is anticipated on one or more of the other targets.” In March 2023, the TOSSD Task Force released the 2021 data at the activity level, which had been reported by 105 providers. ActionAid Italy, Oxfam International, and AidWatch Canada have analyzed these data and the apparent trends in TOSSD allocations in a series of five Briefing Papers.

    This second Briefing Paper looks in depth at patterns in the allocation of 2021 TOSSD resources towards the SDGs. It can be read as a stand-alone report, but the reader will benefit from reviewing the first Briefing Paper (see https://www.oxfamamerica.org/explore/research-publications/trends-in-official-support-for-agenda-2030/) for background on overall trends in the TOSSD data since 2019.

    UNFAIR SHARE: Unequal climate finance to East Africa's hunger crisis

    The stark reality of climate change has highlighted the financial obligations rich polluting nations, especially in the global North, owe communities and countries most impacted and now unprepared to deal with the unavoidable cost of the climate crisis. East Africa is one of the world’s worst hit regions by climate change and is now experiencing its worst climate-induced extreme weather, fueling an alarming hunger crisis, despite contributing almost nothing to global carbon emissions.
