This page in:

More than ever, governments in developing countries have access to capital markets, but most are not using it. Instead, they have restructured their debt portfolios, cutting the share of private sector debt and increasing the share of longer-term multilateral debt...

Also see Benn Eifert and Alan Gelb on how countries are coping with aid volatility.
