In previous years this volume was published as Global
Development Finance: Volume 2. This new edition will be published
as a single volume, and Volume 1 will no longer be published.
Global Development Finance (GDF) is the World Bank's
annual report on the external debt of developing countries. The print
edition includes an overview section focusing on trends in financial
flows as well as trends in external debt for developing countries in
2008. It also highlights support from the World Bank Group to
developing countries and the developments in debt restructuring in
2008. Together with this review of major financial developments in the
previous year, you can find summary tables of key debt ratios for
individual reporting countries and the composition of external debt
stocks and flows by region and income group.
GDF 2010 draws on a database maintained by the World Bank External
Debt (WBXD) system. Longer time series and more detailed data are
available from the Global Development Finance 2010 CD-ROM, which
contains more than 200 time series indicators, covering the years 1970
to 2008 for most reporting countries, and pipeline data for scheduled
debt service payments on existing commitments to 2016.
Recognizing that transparency and accountability are essential to
development, the World Bank Group now provides free, open, and easy
access to its comprehensive set of data on living standards around
the globe--some 2,000 indicators, including hundreds that go back 50
years. The data is available in Arabic, French, and Spanish in addition
Access to these new resources is available at data.worldbank.org, a central web
site that makes it easier to find, use, and manipulate data. A data catalog lists the
available databases. Access
