Detailed final 2014 aid figures released by OECD/DAC


The detailed final aid figures for 2014 are now available (since 22 December 2015) on the OECD Aid Statistics web site.


The new data add significant detail to preliminary Official Development Assistance (ODA) statistics that were released in April 2015 and shed new light on overall aid spending, confirming that rather than declining, ODA reached an all-time high in 2014.  In 2014, final figures for net official development assistance (ODA) flows from DAC member countries totalled USD 137.2 billion, marking an increase of 1.2% in real terms over 2013.  As a share of GNI, ODA was 0.30%.  


This data release includes detailed spending in 2014 on:

  • Aid (ODA) and other resource flows (other official and private flows) by donor and recipient countries;
  • Aid (ODA) by region and sector (such as education and health);
  • Information at a project level; and,
  • Additional information such as policy markers, interest rates, tying status etc.  


The new data are available through the following:


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.
