Full Description

AidData’s Financing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Dataset Version 1.0 provides project-level data on estimated Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitments to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

To create this dataset, we used project-level data on ODA (2000-2013) from AidData’s Core Research Release 3.1, which includes both ODA reported to the OECD Creditor Reporting System (CRS), as well as additional information on ODA from several emerging donors that are not members of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee and do not report their project-level flows to the OECD Creditor’s Reporting Service collected by AidData.

AidData’s Estimating Baseline Aid to the Sustainable Development Goals methodology is based on an analysis of ODA project descriptions and involves two critical steps: (1) a mapping between AidData’s activity coding scheme and the 169 SDG targets; and (2) splitting the dollar value of an aid project across the associated SDG targets. These steps allow us to estimate the total aid at both the goal and target level for the SDGs.
