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 Ireland’s net ODA reached USD 719 million, a 15.7% increase in real terms over 2004. The ODA/GNI ratio also increased from 0.39% to 0.42%. Commitment to the MDGs. Ireland’s development co-operation programmes have, for a number of years, been planned and delivered in the context of the MDGs. Approximately two-thirds of its bilateral assistance goes to LDCs and Ireland is committed to reaching the UN ODA target of 0.7% by 2012, well ahead of the EU target date. The Government of Ireland launched its first White Paper on Development Co-operation on 18 September 2006, which reaffirmed its commitment to the 0.7% target and re-enforced its focus on poverty reduction, alleviation from hunger, conflict resolution and peace building, HIV/AIDs and other communicable diseases.
