The 2007 Annual Report: Resource Flows to Fragile States provides a tool to inform development partner decisions and increase transparency and co-ordination. In 2006, development partners responded to the challenges posed by fragile states with more aid (USD 26.8 billion), but 75% of this aid benefitted just five countries: Nigeria, Afghanistan, Sudan, DRC and Cameroon, and half of it is debt relief. The 2007 Annual Report identified three types of countries requiring special attention:
Countries receiving less aid than would be predicted given their high level of need, compared to countries with similar policy and institutional performance ratings;
Countries with high level of need and weak governance or low capacity; and
Countries with access to only one, two, or three key bilateral donors.
Recognizing that aid is only part of the picture, the 2007 report also tracks non-aid flows to fragile states such as security-related expenditures; domestic revenues, including from natural resources; remittances and foreign direct investment.
