In 2014, Norway provided USD 5 billion in net ODA(preliminary data), which represented 0.99% of gross national income (GNI) and a 4.3% decrease in real terms from 2013. Norway is the third largest Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donor in terms of ODA as a percentage of GNI, and the eighth largest donor by volume. Norway is one of only five DAC members to have met the UN target of 0.7% and it has consistently maintained its level of development assistance, having spent about 1% of GNI on ODA every year since 2009. The grant element of total ODA was 100% in 2013.
