This is the reference page for the XML element total-expenditure.


The total-expenditure element allows for the reporting of the organisation’s international development expenditure. The recommendation is that, where and when possible, the organisation’s total expenditure for each of the past three years is reported. The expense line allows publishers to record further breakdown.
