In reporting their ODA, donor countries refer to Annex 2 List of ODA-eligible international organisations, including multilateral agencies, international NGOs, networks and PPPs. Core budget (unearmarked) contributions to these organisations may be reported as ODA in whole or in part.
This List of ODA eligible organisations is reviewed annually by the DAC Working Party on Development Finance Statistics (WP-STAT). Proposals for changes to the List must be made by DAC members, or, in exceptional cases, the DAC Secretariat, and then agreed by members on a consensus basis.
An organisation interested in being added to the List should follow the following procedure:
Step 1: Carefully review our DAC List of ODA-eligible international organisations - General Methodology information note presenting a comprehensive overview of the procedure and methodology applied.
Step 4: The DAC member(s) wishing to propose a change to the List should send a final draft of the template to the Secretariat by end February for consideration at the next annual WP-STAT meeting in May.
Earmarked contributions to organisations not on the List may also be ODA-eligible provided they meet the ODA criterion of having the promotion of economic development and welfare of developing countries as the main objective (see ODA definition). Such contributions would be reported by members under bilateral ODA.
