DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-85] The data on international funds for financial and technical assistance to LDCs, LLDCs and SIDS show that after an increase between 2005 and 2010, disbursements declined again between 2010 and 2014 (OECD). At the same time, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda calls for enhanced international support and establishment of multi stakeholder partnerships for implementing effective capacity-building in developing countries; the Doha declaration underscores the importance of capacity development and strengthening technical cooperation for developing countries to attain their development goals. How do we reconcile the strong international commitment to support international cooperation and capacity building with the declining financial assistance?
