See full profile in the Development Co-operation Report 2014.

In 2013, Italy provided USD 3.3 billion ODA (preliminary data), a 13.4% increase in real terms from 2012. It is the 11th donor of the Development Co-operation Committee (DAC) in terms of volume. It has committed to raising the ODA/GNI ratio, which was 0.16% in 2013, to 0.28/0.31% in 2017. The proportion of Italy’s untied ODA (excluding administrative costs and in-donor refugee costs) was 82% in 2012, compared with the DAC average of 81%. The grant element of total ODA was 99.4% in 2012.

Peer review findings

Latest evaluation report

‌The DAC notes that Italian Co-operation is facing major challenges. The first is an urgent need to reform official development co-operation, but there is currently no political consensus on how to proceed. The second is that Italy will fail to meet its international commitment to increase official development assistance (ODA) to 0.51% of its gross national income (GNI) by 2010 and is unlikely to meet 0.7% by 2015. In 2008 Italy’s ODA/GNI ratio was 0.22%, only 19th amongst the 23 DAC members and 8th in terms of aid volume.

‌The three NGOs examined for the evaluation "Tanzania NGO Financing" showed great capability in adapting their strategy to fit the changing context and maintaining steady final objectives, even when local equilibriums became fragile. The projects were also found to be sound with Tanzania’s policies in the respective sectors (i.e. agro-pastoral, territorial protection, and planning and health services).
