Unit of measureUSD million
Limitations and exceptionsThe following issues might lead to divergences between the total reported and real disbursed/scheduled aid: the fact that most of donors reported aid in calendar years, but others in fiscal years; when figures were reported in USD it was not specified the exchange rates used and if figures referred to current USD; general budget support (GBS) was not always reported, nor the 20% estimation of GBS going to the education sector; aid to basic education was not always possible to distinguish from the total education aid; not all donors participated in this exercise (although in most of the cases the majority of them participated and in some countries the totality of them reported their aid).
