Demand-Driven Data: How Partner Countries are Gathering Chinese Development Cooperation Information
During the 2013 Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation monitoring process, 11 partner countries reported on Chinese development cooperation data for the first time, amounting to over US$770 million in total. The research paper seeks to better understand the determining factors and mechanisms behind the reporting, and shed some light on how to improve the data gathering process. The paper also highlights the importance of development cooperation data for partner countries and the demand-driven approach and initiatives. It suggests that this could be an effective alternative to getting information about Chinese development cooperation.
