Tracking Chinese Development Finance

china.aiddata.org provides project-level information about Chinese official finance flows. Data are created using a methodology called Tracking Underreported Financial Flows (TUFF). The project is part of AidData, a research lab based at the College of William & Mary.

TUFF 1.2 covers Chinese official finance commitments in Africa from 2000-2013. TUFF 1.3 will be released in early 2017 and includes Chinese official finance commitments worldwide from 2000-2014.
