Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD): Game changer or mirage?
Total Official Support for Sustainable Development, or TOSSD, is a new statistical metric that has been in the making for almost ten years and seeks to capture global efforts in support of sustainable development. It could significantly shape the future of development finance. ActionAid, AidWatch Canada and Oxfam are publishing this discussion paper to shed light on how TOSSD works in practice, its ambitions and shortcomings and the range of political perspectives on this new metric.
Oxfam Discussion Papers
Oxfam Discussion Papers are written to contribute to public debate and to invite feedback on development and humanitarian policy issues. They are ’work in progress’ documents, and do not necessarily constitute final publications or reflect Oxfam policy positions. The views and recommendations expressed are those of the author and not necessarily those of Oxfam. For more information, or to comment on this paper, email Brian Tomlinson [[email protected]]
