This activity is deemed not ODA-eligible. The training of provider country military is excluded from ODA and so are the costs for providing that training activity.
The deployment of provider country military used to perform aerial delivery procedures in recipient countries, in order to deliver development services and humanitarian aid, would be ODA-eligible, but additional costs only (paragraph 97). Furthermore, training of partner country military in performing the aerial delivery procedures would qualify as training in humanitarian response and disaster relief preparedness, which is one of the listed eligible training areas in the Reporting Directives on partner country military. That activity could hence be ODA-eligible provided the ‘last resort’ principle is met (paragraph 97).
