In 2015, the Czech Republic provided USD 202 million in net ODA (preliminary data). This represented 0.12% of gross national income (GNI) and an increase of 11.4% in real terms from 2014. It is the 26th largest Development Assistance Committee (DAC) provider in terms of ODA as a percentage of GNI, and the 25th largest in terms of volume. The Czech Republic is committed to a gradual increase in ODA/GNI and will strive to reach the intermediary target agreed at the EU level of 0.33% of GNI by 2030. Its share of untied ODA (excluding administrative costs and in-donor refugee costs) decreased further, from 40.1% in 2013 to 32.4% in 2014, and is far below the 2014 DAC average of 80.6%. The grant element of total ODA was 100% in 2014. At present, data on other official flows, private grants (funds raised by non-governmental organisations and foundations) and private flows at market terms from the Czech Republic to developing countries are not available.

Latest evaluation reports

The Czech Republic's development co-operation system has been revamped and restructured to make it more effective, and assistance has become more focused geographically and sectorally. The Czech ODA system underwent a significant transformation from 2008 through 2012, which progressively transferred to the Ministry of Foreign Affaires (MFA) bilateral development activities and projects that were previously managed by nine different ministries.
