World Bank, OECD Map Aid Landscape

The World Bank and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development have created an aid mapping tool to show the flow of development funding per country.

The tool, dubbed AidFlows, presents the total volume of aid provided by OECD members and the total funding received by developing nations. The types of aid money tracked by AidFlows comprise official development assistance and trust funds administered by the World Bank.

The tool aims to “provide a concise summary of the World Bank’s funding commitments and disbursements in a given developing country. AidFlows focuses on the development resources made available by the World Bank to the poorest countries, in the form of grants and interest-free loans,” Axel van Trotsenburg, World Bank vice president for concessional finance and global partnerships, writes in a blog published by the bank.

For each nation, the tool also presents indicators of aid dependency, data on the type of aid received, the top 10 donors for a country and sector breakdown of aid money.
