ILO’s Official Development Assistance data now available on OECD-DAC database

The OECD-DAC has published detailed financial information on ODA core spending by the ILO in 2014 and 2015

GENEVA (ILO News) – A major step towards increased transparency of development finance has been made by the ILO with the publication of its core spending on Official Development Assistance (ODA) for the biennium 2014-2015 in the Creditor Reporting System (CRS) Aid Activity database.

The CRS Aid Activity database, maintained by the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC), is the world's most authoritative source of annual statistical information on international aid flows. Its objective is to provide readily available data on development finance in order to allow anyone to easily understand and compare information on where aid comes from, where it goes and what purposes it serves. The DAC collects aid information from all OECD members, most multilateral organizations and some non-DAC donors, which are then published every year.

The ILO is fully committed to transparency and accountability in its relations with development partners, governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations and the general public."

Guy Ryder, ILO Director-General

The published data cover all ODA-eligible expenditures from the ILO's Regular Budget and Regular Budget Supplementary Account (RBSA) in 2014 and 2015. This adds up to the previously published data for 2012 and 2013.

At the same time, the ILO has been publishing information on voluntary funding through the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). It has also developed a new Development Cooperation Dashboard, where information on projects and spending can be easily navigated through an interactive and user-friendly platform.
