Luxembourg is the 3rd largest Development Assistance Committee (DAC) provider in terms of ODA as a percentage of GNI – and one of only six DAC members to have met the UN target of 0.7% – and the 22nd in terms of volume. Luxembourg’s share of untied ODA (excluding administrative costs and in-donor refugee costs) increased from 97% in 2013 to 97.5% in 2014, and is above the DAC average of 80.6%. The grant element of total ODA was 100% in 2014.

Luxembourg: a generous aid donor. Luxembourg allocated 0.97% of its gross national income, or USD 413 million, to official development assistance in 2011. “Luxembourg is the Development Assistance Committee’ s third most generous donor as a portion of its economy – after Sweden and Norway – and it has a high quality programme,” says former DAC Chair Brian Atwood. “We commend Luxembourg’s commitment to keeping its ODA at 1% of GNI until 2014”.
