Development Monitor launches financial flows dashboard

Development Monitor has launched the initial version of its dashboard showing financials flows between the UK and developing countries. The dashboard is the first step in Development Monitor’s work to monitor interactions between the UK and developing countries, with the aim of improving accountability for policies (beyond aid spending) that affect developing countries.

The initial version includes bilateral flows for remittances, Official Development Assistance (ODA), trade in goods and Foreign Direct Investment, with trends shown over the five years 2010-2015.  The data currently covers all developing countries classed as low income and lower middle income by the World Bank.

The dashboard is currently being developed and tested so please contact(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) with your feedback and suggestions. Over the coming weeks and months we will be introducing new ways to explore the data, adding more datasets (such as investment positions, CDC investments flows and payments for natural resources), as well as looking at what the data can tell us.
