What is it spent for?
The purpose/sector of destination of a bilateral contribution should be selected
by answering the question “which specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure is the transfer intended to foster”.
The sector classification does not refer to the type of goods or services provided by the donor.
Sector specific education or research activities (e.g. agricultural education) or construction of infrastructure (e.g. agricultural storage)
should be reported under the sector to which they are directed, not under education, construction, etc.
By means of?
The typology identifies the modalities that are used in aid delivery. It classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds (e.g. the recipient country,
a multilateral organisation, or a basket fund). It does not track the end uses of the funds, which is addressed in the sector classification and to some extent through the policy objective markers.
