Ensuring efficient and targeted resources to countries most in need


Because ODA is a scarce resource for financing development, it is important to ensure it reaches the countries and people that need it most.

The DAC is keen to promote a more effective distribution of ODA in line with international commitments and pledges designed to ensure that no country -- including least developed countries (LDCs), low-income countries (LICs), small island developing states (SIDS), land-locked developing countries (LLDCs) and fragile and conflict-affected states – is left behind.
