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, New Zealand’s net ODA amounted to USD 429 million. This figure represents a 10.7% increase over 2010, placing New Zealand among the few DAC members that increased – in real terms – their ODA in 2011. This is also the first increase in net ODA recorded by New Zealand after a 2% decrease in 2009 and a 6% drop in 2010. New Zealand is committed to reaching an ODA level of NZD 600 million, and will continue to increase ODA according to its medium-term expenditure plan.
