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, Spain’s net ODA amounted to USD 4.26 billion. Spain’s ODA grew considerably between 2006 and 2008, with average annual increases of nearly 22% in real terms during these years. However, the global economic crisis and its aftermath has resulted in cuts in Spain’s ODA budget since 2009 that are now becoming more significant (the drop in ODA in 2011 represents a decrease of 32.7% in real terms from 2010). ODA levels are expected to continue to decrease as the new Spanish government is planning more budget cuts to respond to its difficult financial situation.
