Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD-DAC)

Donor profile: Spain

 

Member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since 1991.

In 2012, Spain’s net ODA amounted to USD 1.95 billion, a 50% decrease in real terms from 2011 and the largest percentage decrease in ODA of any DAC member for that year. The global economic crisis and its aftermath have caused severe cuts in Spain’s ODA budget. Spain’s ODA has been in decline since 2009, averaging at an annual rate of –23% between 2009 and 2012. Spain had significantly scaled up its ODA between 2006 and 2008, with average annual increases of nearly 22% in real terms.

Spain’s ODA/GNI ratio in 2012 was 0.15%, down from 0.29% in 2011 and 0.43% in 2010. Spain was unable to reach either the EU’s intermediate target of 0.51% ODA/GNI in 2010 or its own national target of 0.56%. It is also unlikely that Spain will reach the goal of 0.7% ODA/GNI in 2015.

Peer review findings

spain_peerSpain’s development aid much improved, but still needs more focus
Although the economic crisis has forced Spain to cut public spending, including development co-operation, its aid has almost doubled in the past 7 years. In addition to this higher quantity, the OECD’s Review of the Development Co-operation Policies and Programmes of Spain commends the improved quality of its development co-operation programmes.
