TOSSD Compendium 2016
Contribution of the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) public consultation on the Total Official Support for Sustainable Development (TOSSD) Compendium 2016, Bonn: German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
In addition to our responses to the questions in the Compendium, we would like to emphasize that TOSSD might be a valuable opportunity to facilitate a dialogue on concepts and technical aspects of international development cooperation approaches between different actors (the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) members, emerging economies, etc.). Against this background, we propose that the DAC makes additional outreach efforts to actors, which have to date not yet engaged strongly in TOSSD and relevant Official Development Assistance (ODA) modernization discussions, particularly to key actors in influential non-DAC cooperation such as from Brazil, China, India and South Africa (governments, think tanks, civil society organizations). We would recommend that this outreach should include dedicated regional events outside Europe.
