The richness, comprehensiveness and scope of coverage make the OECD’s Aid Statistics data unique. They cover ODA and other aid and development-related official and private flows from the 29 Development Assistance Committee (DAC) members, multilateral agencies, regional development banks, a large number of non-DAC providers of development cooperation and flows from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The OECD estimates that it captures 95% of global ODA spending.

By collecting and publishing these data, the OECD-DAC aims to promote transparency, and help improve the design and effectiveness of global aid programmes.
