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.
Statistics on external development finance extended with the purpose of assisting developing countries in the implementation of the three Rio Conventions.
In 2013, Qatar’s development co‑operation amounted to USD 486 million in 2012, compared to USD 684 million in 2011 (OECD estimates). Qatar channelled 1% of its development co-operation through multilateral institutions.
Mexico published figures on its development co-operation programme for the first time in 2014. According to these figures, Mexico’s concessional finance for development reached USD 277 million in 2012, up from USD 269 million in 2011.
In 2012, Indonesia’s development co-operation amounted to an estimated USD 19 million, compared to USD 7 million in 2011 (OECD estimates). USD 16 million (86%) was channelled through multilateral organisations.
According to OECD estimates, Colombia’s concessional finance for development reached USD 87 million in 2012, compared to USD 22 million in 2011 (OECD estimates). Most of these flows were channelled to and through multilateral organisations. In 2012, Colombia’s contributions through multilateral organisations that would qualify as ODA amounted to USD 78 million, up from USD 21 million in 2011 (OECD estimate).
In 2013, China’s bilateral co-operation reached USD 3.1 billion, compared to USD 2.6 billion in 2012 (OECD estimates). Including developmental funds channelled through multilateral organisations, the OECD estimates that China’s total concessional finance for development reached USD 2.8 billion in 2012.
According to OECD estimates, Chile’s concessional finance for development reached USD 42 million in 2012 (OECD estimate). Chile’s contributions through multilateral organisations that would qualify as ODA amounted to USD 31 million, or 74%.
In 2013, Brazil published a report on its 2010 development co-operation programme (Ipea and ABC, 2013). Based on that report, the OECD estimates that USD 500 million of Brazil’s international co‑operation would meet the criteria for ODA.
In 2013, Turkey’s net ODA amounted to USD 3.3 billion, representing an increase of 30% in real terms over 2012. The large increase in Turkish ODA over the last years is strongly related to its response to the Syrian refugee crisis.
