These ready-made tables and charts provide for snapshot of aid (Official Development Assistance) for all DAC Members as well as recipient countries and territories. Summary reports by regions (Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Oceania) and the world are also available.
The International Development Statistics databases cover bilateral, multilateral and private donors’ aid (ODA) and other resource flows to developing countries in: 1. The DAC annual aggregates database, which provides comprehensive data on the volume, origin and types of aid and other resource flows; 2. The Creditor Reporting System (CRS), which provides detailed information on individual aid activities, such as sectors.
See the latest OECD statistics that show how much aid donor country governments are giving, and to whom. How much goes to the poorest countries? How much to multilateral organisations like the United Nations? Which sectors get the most aid - economic infrastructure or social programmes? These statistics show the first evidence of scaling up aid as promised by donors recently.
The detailed final aid figures for 2012 are now available 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 2013.
