The DAC has measured resource flows to developing countries since 1961. Special attention has been given to the official and concessional part of this flow, defined as “official development assistance” (ODA). The DAC first defined ODA in 1969, and tightened the definition in 1972. ODA is the key measure used in practically all aid targets and assessments of aid performance.
The concept of country programmable aid aims to provide a better estimate of the volume of resources transferred to developing countries. This brief asks: how is this concept defined, how useful is it, and what can be done to make it better?

Net official development assistance (ODA) to Haiti has fluctuated over the past 20 years since 2002, however, it has increased substantially, with very sharp rises in both development aid and peacekeeping expenditure. As a result of the earthquake that hit Haiti in January 2010, the volume of aid provided to this country in the form of humanitarian assistance will, of course, increase.
Presenting the projections of ODA in 2010, A. Gurría stated that it is crucial that aid pledges must be honoured because they represent an investment in the emergence of effective and decent states around the globe.
