Member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since 1999.
In 2012, Greece’s net ODA amounted to USD 324 million, down from USD 425 million in 2011. This 17% decrease in real terms is a direct consequence of the country’s severe economic crisis. Greek ODA did increase in 2007 (+5%) and 2008 (+27%) before starting to decline in 2009 (–13%).
The ODA/GNI ratio reached 0.13% in 2012, down from 0.15% in 2011. Prospects for a future increase of ODA levels look bleak in light of Greece’s financial situation.
