Member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since 2010.
In 2012, Korea’s net ODA amounted to USD 1.55 billion, a 17.6% increase in real terms from 2011. This is due to the overall scaling up of its development co-operation to achieve an ODA/GNI ratio of 0.25% by 2015.
In 2012, Korea’s ODA/GNI ratio reached 0.14%, slightly missing its 2012 interim target of 0.15% ODA/GNI. Although Korea had the third lowest ODA/GNI ratio within the DAC, its ODA volume was the 16th largest in 2012, up one place from 2011.
