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 France’s net ODA increased 16.8% in real terms, reaching USD 10 billion. The ODA/GNI ratio also increased from 0.41% in 2004 to 0.47% in 2005. Commitment to the MDGs. France is committed to achieving the MDGs. French aid is largely directed towards Africa and nearly a third of subsidies granted to poor countries are spent on education and health projects. Its efforts go hand-in-hand with initiatives to protect the global commons, “global public goods” (the three priorities being: combating emerging transmittable diseases, combating climate change and conserving biodiversity). Along with five other European countries, in 2006 France launched the International Finance Facility for Immunisation (IFFIm) in order to broaden immunisation programmes in Africa and also introduced a solidarity tax on airline tickets. This innovative method of financing will raise financial resources which will be used for development programmes in the field of health. Managed by the international drug purchase facility, UNITAID and IFFIm, these funds will serve in particular to fight HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria and will be additional to France’s commitments to the Global Fund to fight the three pandemic diseases.
