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, Korea’s ODA was USD 1.32 billion. This figure is an increase of almost 6% from 2010 when Korea’s aid surpassed USD 1 billion for the first time. Korea increased its ODA at an average annual rate of 29% a year between 2006 and 2010. Moreover, Korea’s ODA volume was the 17th largest in the DAC in 2011, up one place from 2010; its commitment to increase ODA could bring it up to 15th position by 2015.
