AidData Chinese development finance profile

While China is becoming a main actor of international cooperation for development, it rarely discloses the specific financing terms and implementation details at project-level or transaction-level information about its foreign aid activities which makes it challenging for other actors of the international cooperation for development (including SDC) to understand their implications on recipient countries. The AidData project is building a dataset of country profiles summarizing Chinese’s aid with information form, function and impacts of their programs.
