See the latest OECD statistics that show how much aid donor country governments are giving, and to whom. How much goes to the poorest countries? How much to multilateral organisations like the United Nations? Which sectors get the most aid - economic infrastructure or social programmes? These statistics show the first evidence of scaling up aid as promised by donors recently.

We have come a long way since 2005, when we launched the Aid for Trade initiative in Hong Kong at the 6th WTO Ministerial Conference. Each successive global review has deepened our analysis and broadened our understanding of the dynamics of aid, trade, development and their interaction. In parallel, more and more partner countries and donors have come on board as the tangible results of our efforts become apparent.
France’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) was USD 12.1 billion in 2012, making it the 4th largest member of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee in terms of the volume of aid. However, this represents 0.46% of French Gross National Income (GNI) – below France’s international commitment. The review recommends that France plan to reach the 0.7% ODA/GNI ratio as soon as possible.

The 2013 report Aid for Trade at a Glance: Connecting to Value Chains analyses the strategies, priorities, and programmes from the public and private sectors in developing and developed countries to connect developing country suppliers to value chains. The publication was launched at the 8-10 July 4th Global Review of Aid for Trade at WTO in Geneva and can be read on OECD iLibrary.
On the occasion of the 4th Global Review of Aid for Trade, the OECD and the WTO, in collaboration with GrowAfrica; the International Chamber of Commerce; the International Trade Center; the International Telecommunications Union; and the United Nations World Tourism Organization, conducted a survey among the private sector to identify the barriers that suppliers in developing countries face in connecting to value chains.
The purpose of this OECD Study is to provide the aid-for-trade community with good practices in designing and introducing results frameworks for aid-for-trade projects, and programmes based on country-defined quantifiable targets and a menu of limited number of indicators to measure performance (i.e. outcomes and impacts). We have prepared case studies focusing on Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Rwanda, Solomon Islands and Vietnam.
