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.

Sweden is an ambitious and influential actor on sustainable development. It is committed to making its development assistance more focused, relevant, effective and transparent. Sweden focuses on Ukraine, humanitarian support, democracy, climate action, gender equality, trade, and migration. Its development co-operation has had a clear focus on poverty reduction and sub-Saharan Africa. Sweden’s total official development assistance (ODA) (USD 5.5 billion, preliminary data) increased in 2022 due to in-donor refugee costs. ODA represented 0.9% of gross national income (GNI).
