Key Facts


Note on data sources for Turkey country profile

Humanitarian assistance from Turkey is reported to both the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA’s) Financial Tracking Service (FTS) and to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC). The FTS and DAC employ different categories and definitions of humanitarian assistance.

The totals reported to the OECD DAC may include some of the costs for Turkey’s hosting of refugees on its own territory, while only humanitarian assistance given internationally can be reported to UN OCHA’s FTS. Turkey does not report to the DAC’s Creditor Reporting System (CRS) as it is not a DAC member, and therefore there is no detailed project level data on the total humanitarian assistance that Turkey has reported to the OECD DAC. However, according to both the DAC and Turkey’s own statements, it is likely that a significant proportion of Turkey’s DAC reported humanitarian assistance in recent years is for expenditure on Syrian refugees within Turkey.

In Turkey’s country profile, we have used humanitarian assistance data from the OECD DAC – though here we  show the total aggregate amounts reported to both the OECD DAC and UN OCHA’s FTS for comparison.
