Resource Flows Data

Exploring global financial flows for population activities

About Resource Flows Data

The Resource Flows project collects data on international population assistance and domestic expenditures for population activities in developing countries and countries in transition. The project was established in 1997 to monitor progress in achieving the financial targets set at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994, and the Declaration of Commitment adopted at the United Nations Special Session on HIV/AIDS (UNGASS) in 2001. These data are used to monitor expenditures related to population and AIDS; to track progress in achieving the financial targets set at the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS (UNGASS); and to advocate for the mobilisation of adequate funds to ensure that ICPD and UNGASS promises are realised. Data collected by the Resource Flows project are used for annual publications by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), but are also used by NGOs and other research initiatives.

Resource Flows Data is the online Database for data collected by the UNFPA/NIDI Resource Flows Project.

Through the Resource Flows Data website some of these data are made available for researchers, policy makers, and those interested in population funding. Visitors looking for general information on funding of population activities have the option to explore the data through readymade tables and graphs presented by topic on the General Visitors Pages. You can access more detailed figures (on project level) on the Advanced Pages. Note that currently, only data related to donor countries has been made available on this website.
