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

In 2012, Denmark’s net ODA amounted to USD 2.72 billion. Compared to 2011, this figure is a real decrease of 1.8% and follows the 3% drop in 2010. The decrease in 2012 was mainly due to unforeseen events that affected disbursements of funds for specific development programmes. As for many DAC members, these are the first decreases after steady ODA increases – in the case of Denmark, by an average real annual rate of 2% between 2007 and 10.
