Emerging providers of development finance and other countries that are not members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) have an increasingly important role in financing development co-operation (see Table 1). This generates a stronger need for transparency on their development co-operation programmes. Statistics, analyses and information on reporting by these countries to the OECD are available here. Estimates are published on countries that do not provide the OECD with data.
|Table 1: Estimated global development co-operation flows, 2012-16 (net disbursments, current prices, USD billion)|
2016 (% of total)
|ODA from current 29 DAC member countries||
|ODA from 20 reporting countries beyond the DAC||6.1||16.3||24.6||17.5||14.5||8.7%|
|Estimated development co-operation flows from ten non-reporting countries beyond the DAC||5.6||6.8||7||6.9||7.4||4.4%|
|Subtotal flows from non-DAC providers||11.8||23.2||31.7||24.6||21.9||13.1%|
|Estimated global total||138.7||157.9||169.1||156.0||166.8||100%|
Note: For Brazil, Indonesia, Colombia and Qatar 2016 bilateral development co-operation figures were not available at the time. OECD estimates were made by using bilateral figures of the latest available year for bilateral co-operation and the 2016 data on multilateral flows.
The following countries and economies do report to the OECD:
OECD estimates on the development co-operation programmes of the following countries:
The OECD/DAC encourages all providers of development co-operation to report their aid flows and is available to assist in this effort. More detailed and comprehensive information on these flows allows providers and recipients alike to make more informed decisions on aid allocations and helps to identify countries and sectors that may be over- or under-funded.
Non-DAC countries and the debate on measuring post-2015 development finance (DAC paper, February 2014)
This paper includes estimates on total global development finance. At the point of publication Mexico had not yet published its development co-operation figures, so these are not yet taken into account.
