Also available in: French


The Development Co-operation Report (DCR) is a yearly report by the Chair of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) that addresses important challenges for the international development community and provides practical guidance and recommendations on how to tackle them. Moreover, it reports the profiles and performance of DAC development co-operation providers and presents DAC statistics on official development assistance (ODA) and private resource flows.

The Development Co-operation Report 2014: Mobilising resources for sustainable development is the second in a trilogy (2013-15) focusing on “Global Development Co-operation Post-2015: Managing Interdependence”. The report provides an overview of the sources of finance available to developing countries and proposes recommendations on how to mobilise further resources. It also explores how to mobilise resources to finance the provision of global public goods: for example, to combat climate change, promote peace and security, and create a fair and equal trading system.

what is the background of the 2014 report?

At the Development Assistance Committee’s High-Level Meeting in December 2012, DAC Ministers called for modernising the DAC statistical system and devising new, broader measures of total official support for development. The 2014 DCR complements work to fulfil this mandate by exploring the many potential sources of development finance, as well as the diverse means of mobilising additional resources to fund the implementation of the post-2015 goals. This will include a focus on mobilising financial resources from the private sector.

The currrent cycle of reports is designed to prepare for 2015 and beyond. The Development Co-operation Report 2014 is the second in a trilogy (2013-15) focusing on “Global Development Co-operation Post-2015: Managing Interdependence”. The DCR 2013: Ending Poverty looked at how to end poverty by 2030.



expanded profiles of development co-operation providers

The profiles of DAC members and other development co-operation providers give key data on the resources they mobilise for sustainable development. They include an overview of official development assistance as well as other official flows, private flows at market terms and private grants – resources mobilised by NGOs and foundations. For the first time in 2014, the profiles are directly aligned with the overall thematic focus of the DCR – Mobilising resources for sustainable development. They look at the catalysing role of ODA, particularly in relation to private sector development strategies, tax and development, aid for trade, and remittances. Using the latest data from OECD statistics, the profiles also show the channels DAC members and others use to allocate their ODA, as well as how ODA is allocated by geography and sectors.
