Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD-DAC)

Donor profile: United States

 

Member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since 1961.

In 2012, the United States’ net ODA amounted to USD 30.46 billion at current prices, a 2.8% drop in real terms that followed the 1% decrease recorded in 2011. The 2012 fall is mainly due to a reduction in bilateral net debt relief compared to 2011. As a result, ODA as a share of GNI also fell from 0.20% in 2011 to 0.19% in 2012.

Peer review findings

peer_unitedstatesUSA: a generous donor, is committed to making aid more effective
The United States has significantly enhanced its development strategies, policies, and programmes. It should continue to reduce overlaps and improve co-ordination, according to the DAC's Review of the Development Co-operation Policies and Programs of the United States. The U.S. should also better incorporate and reflect  the goals and strategies of developing countries, continue to rebuild the capacity of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and identify key priority areas where it will pursue coherence between development goals and its domestic and other foreign policies.

Latest evaluation report

eval_unitedstatesThe "Evaluation of Water-to-Market Training in Armenia" looked at the Millenium Challenge Corporation's compact with Armenia, which was a five-year investment (2006-2011) of USD 177.6 million in two projects: irrigated agriculture and rural road rehabilitation. Although most output and outcome targets were met or exceeded, the evaluation did not detect impacts on adoption, productive income or household income.
