The Resource Flows (RF) project monitors progress achieved by donors and developing countries in implementing the financial resource targets agreed upon at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994 and the Declaration of Commitment adopted at the United Nations Special Session on HIV/AIDS in 2001. The RF project collects data and subsequently reports on international population assistance and domestic expenditures for population activities in developing countries.
