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.

The 2015 Development Co-operation Charter commits Japan to making a proactive contribution to peace, and mobilising a wide range of resources for development in addition to official development assistance (ODA). Japan aims to contribute to peace and prosperity, promote human security, and support self-reliant development based on Japan’s experience and expertise. It seeks to achieve quality growth and, through this, poverty eradication. Its assistance supports sharing of universal values such as freedom, democracy, respect for basic human rights and the rule of law in order to realise a peaceful, stable and secure society. Japan’s efforts to address global challenges contribute to building a sustainable and resilient international community. A DAC Peer Review of Japan’s development co-operation commences in 2019.
