As part of our efforts to complete the global picture of development co-operation, we track trends and statistics from countries beyond members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC).
Development assistance from countries beyond the DAC is rising rapidly and, in some cases, exceeds the contributions made by individual DAC members. In 2010, Saudi Arabia provided USD 3.48 billion in gross ODA, exceeding the gross ODA volumes of 12 of the 24 DAC countries. In the same year, China provided an estimated USD 2 billion in gross ODA, and Turkey USD 967.4 million.
At present, 17 countries beyond the DAC membership report their aid flows to the DAC.

Beyond the DAC: the welcome role of other providers of development co-operation
Transparency on aid flows is an important tool for accountability – both for the countries benefitting from aid and for citizens of the country providing aid. More detailed and comprehensive information on development co-operation flows allows providers and recipients alike to make more informed decisions on aid allocations and helps to identify countries and sectors that may be over- or under-funded.
