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.

In 2011, Japan’s net ODA amounted to USD 10.6 billion. This was a fall of nearly 11% in real terms from 2010 (although 2010 levels were 12% higher than the previous year). This fall was largely due to the decline in government loans. Japan’s ODA has been suffering from an extended period of stagnation, fluctuating around the USD 10 billion mark between 2006 and 2011.
