The International TOSSD Task Force is an inclusive group of experts from provider countries, recipient countries and multilateral organisations that has been collectively developing TOSSD since 2017. The International TOSSD Task Force makes all documents publicly available, fully respecting the recommendation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda that, in July 2015, called for the development of TOSSD in an “open, inclusive and transparent manner”. This page provides details of the International TOSSD Task Force members, the meetings held, the documents discussed and the decisions taken.

Highlights from the 12th Task Force meeting

The 12th International Task Force meeting took place virtually on 9 and 11 March 2021. At the meeting, the TOSSD Task Force Secretariat presented members the first TOSSD dataset and the updated website. Members discussed key strategic objectives and activities to promote the TOSSD framework and the use of TOSSD data in 2021. They also discussed a proposal to develop a basic manual of procedures for the Task Force. The TOSSD Task Force Secretariat updated members on the work of the IAEG-SDGs working group on measurement of development support.

What does the International TOSSD Task Force do?

The International TOSSD Task Force was created in July 2017 and currently has 29 members and 7 observers. The participants are statistical and development policy experts from provider countries, recipient countries and multilateral organisations. The International TOSSD Task Force established the first version of the TOSSD methodology in 2019, illustrated in the document “TOSSD Reporting Instructions”, and continues to work on its further development.

For these processes, the International TOSSD Task Force consults experts on specific issues for example on peace & security and communicable diseases. The Civil Society community also participates in the Task Force as an observer.
