The OECD Development Assistance Committee's annual report on international aid. This year's edition includes an overview reviewing recent trends in aid volume, allocation, and effectiveness. A special chapter looks at how aid for trade can be made more effective.  Preliminary findings from the 2006 Baseline Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration are also presented.  Individual chapters for each donor country summarize key features of each country's programme including data on total flows, breakdowns by income group, geographical region and sector, and listing of the top ten recipients. Country chapters also include commentary on the donor's commitment to the MDGs, aid effectiveness, and policy coherence. The comprehensive statistical annex provides graphs and tables showing the evolution of aid flows.

In 2005 Australia’s total net ODA amounted to USD 1.68 billion, an increase of 6.7% in real terms, representing 0.25% of its GNI, the same percentage as in 2004. Commitment to the MDGs. Australia fully and actively supports the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with strategies and programmes to reduce poverty and promote development, largely in the Asia- Pacific region. The new White Paper for Australia’s aid programme, launched in April 2006, foreshadows scaled-up investments in health, education and infrastructure, underpinned by efforts to strengthen those areas most conducive to the long-term elimination of poverty: economic growth, governance, anticorruption and security. In 2005, Australia published a progress report entitled A Global Partnership for Development which provides details on Australia’s approach and contribution to achieving the MDGs.
