The Development Co-operation Report is the key annual reference document for statistics and analysis on trends in international aid. This year, the Development Co-operation Report 2012 seeks to provide insights into how to address today’s sustainable development challenges, with a focus on inclusiveness and good governance to ensure that our finite resources are equitably distributed, now and in the future.
Sharing finite resources among a growing number people – and consumers – is a critical challenge. It is in this spirit that J. Brian Atwood, Chair of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), invited several intellectual leaders on the challenges of inclusive, sustainable development to contribute to this year’s report.

Australia is among the few DAC members to increase ODA in 2011, having escaped the global economic and financial crises without a recession, and being relatively unaffected by the current euro area turmoil. In 2011, Australia’s net ODA was USD 4.8 billion, a 5.7% increase in real terms over 2010. This funded larger bilateral grants in 2010 and 2011 and has kept the annual growth rate of Australia’s ODA at 6% since 2006.
