Development Co-operation Profiles

image of Development Co-operation Profiles

The OECD’s Development Co-operation Profiles compile and analyse verified statistics and trends on how development assistance is allocated geographically, to sectors, multilateral and civil society organisations, cross-cutting priorities such as gender equality and women’s economic empowerment and the environment and climate, and to mobilise private finance. The profiles cover official and philanthropic providers of aid, official development assistance (ODA) and development finance. These providers include members of the OECD and its Development Assistance Committee (DAC), other countries and philanthropic foundations. The profiles also give an overview of key strategic and policy priorities for development co-operation, the institutional set-up and evaluation systems.

The Development Co-operation Profiles are published annually and are a pillar of the OECD’s Development Co-operation Report . For more than 50 years, the Development Co-operation Report has brought new evidence, analysis and ideas to the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) and international community more broadly, shaping policy reform, behaviour change and promoting best practices in development co-operation. Each year the report analyses a fresh policy issue that is timely, relevant or challenging for development co-operation policy and finance. The main report also includes shorter profiles of each provider that present key trends through infographics.

In February 2023, Spain approved a Law on Co-operation for Sustainable Development and Global Solidarity with the support of all parliamentary forces except one. The law aligns Spain’s priorities to the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change and gives legal status to its commitment to allocate 0.7% of gross national income (GNI) to official development assistance (ODA) by 2030. Geographic priorities remain Latin America, the Maghreb, West Africa and the Sahel, and Spain adapts its thematic focus according to its partners. Spain’s total ODA (USD 4.2 billion, preliminary data) increased in 2022, mostly due to in-donor refugee costs. ODA represented 0.3% of GNI.
