Development aid rose by 6.1% in real terms in 2013 to reach the highest level ever recorded, despite continued pressure on budgets in OECD countries since the global economic crisis. Donors provided a total of USD 134.8 billion in net official development assistance (ODA).
Since the Monterrey Consensus in 2002, there is a broad recognition that more attention should be paid to development finance beyond ODA. Work is ongoing to improve the quality and policy-relevance of DAC statistics in this area.
The final figures show that in 2013, net ODA was USD 134.5 billion, representing 0.30% of DAC donors’ combined gross national income.
We collect and publish data on development finance to monitor how it responds to development issues.
