Development Co-operation Report 2013

Ending Poverty

The Development Co-operation Report (DCR) 2013 explores what needs to be done to achieve rapid and sustainable progress in the global fight to reduce poverty. The world is on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target of halving the proportion of people whose income is less than USD 1.25 a day. Nonetheless, we are far from achieving the overarching MDG goal of eradicating extreme poverty. While we have learned much about what works in terms of reducing poverty, "getting to zero" remains a challenge in the face of the intractable difficulties of reaching those mired in extreme poverty.

The report  focuses on the very poor and will set out, in concrete terms:
• The nature and dimensions of poverty today
• What development co-operation – and the global partnerships it supports – can do in the fight against poverty

The DCR 2013 will focus on the positive experiences of countries, highlighting policies and approaches that have worked.

Hide / Show Abstract

Australia is among the few DAC members to increase ODA in 2012, having escaped the global economic and financial crises without a recession and being relatively unaffected by the current euro area turmoil. In 2012, Australia’s net ODA was USD 5.44 billion, a 10.4% increase in real terms over 2011 due to larger bilateral grants. Australia has kept the annual growth rate of its ODA at 9% since 2006.
