Commonwealth Perspectives on OECD-DAC Post-2015 Statistical Reform

The international community is meeting in July 2015 to agree on the financing framework to underpin the UN post-2015 development agenda, scheduled to be adopted in September 2015.

The OECD-DAC contribution – a set of proposals for reforming the OECD-DAC statistical system – will be particularly important as these proposals will help to shape donors’ development financing incentives for at least the next ten years.

This discussion paper assesses the proposals and their anticipated impact on development flows to Commonwealth countries. It will be especially useful for Commonwealth negotiators ahead of the July 2015 meeting.
