Announcement

This codebook prescribes AidData’s method for geocoding foreign aid information and programmatic development data that is made available through a wide range of donor, recipient, and other stakeholder-based sources. The main objective of the AidData methodology is to track all locations to which aid dollars are committed or disbursed. Locations that may be expected to benefit indirectly from development finance are not geocoded. The implied mandate for this methodology is to “follow the money.”

Note: This methodology was updated August 2019.
