In 2013, Greece provided USD 305 million ODA (preliminary data), which represented 0.13% of gross national income (GNI) and a fall of 7.7% in real terms from 2012, compared to a decrease of 17% between 2011 and 2012. Greece’s aid budget started to decline in 2009 as a direct consequence of the severe economic crisis. Greece’s share of untied ODA (excluding administrative costs and in-donor refugee costs) was 6% in 2012, compared with the DAC average of 81%.The high amount of tied aid is due to the composition of Greece’s aid with a high share of tied technical co-operation in its aid portfolio. The grant element of total ODA was 100% in 2012.
