Development aid rose by 6.1% in real terms in 2013 to reach the highest level ever recorded, despite continued pressure on budgets in OECD countries since the global economic crisis. Donors provided a total of USD 134.8 billion in net official development assistance (ODA), marking a rebound after two years of falling volumes, as a number of governments stepped up their spending on foreign aid.
The DAC Secretariat maintains various codes lists which are used by donors to report on their aid flows to the DAC databases. In addition, these codes are used to classify information in the DAC databases.
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.
From numbers to meaning – what stories do the data tell us? Access our major reports covering global aid and development flows plus major in-depth studies by sector, type of aid and recipient groups.
All about numbers – who spends what, where? See our latest data in a range of easy to view formats from high level overviews to country and sector specific data. You can also download a wide range of data (xls) and link through to our databases and aid statistics websites of major donors.

Addressing the “unfinished business” of the MDGs for women and girls will require a strong post-2015 framework that places a high priority on achieving gender equality and women’s rights.
Gender equality and women’s rights are essential to achieving the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It is time to back up political promises with action and resources. Increased investments in five key areas will have catalytic effects on the lives of women and girls, and accelerate development progress beyond 2015.
