Development finance of countries beyond the DAC

 

Emerging providers of development finance and other countries that are not members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) have an increasingly important role in financing development co-operation (see Table 1). This generates a stronger need for transparency on their development co-operation programmes. Statistics, analyses and information on reporting by these countries to the OECD are available here. Estimates are published on countries that do not provide the OECD with data.

Reporting by countries beyond the DAC

The OECD/DAC encourages all providers of development co-operation to report their aid flows and is available to assist in this effort. More detailed and comprehensive information on these 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.
