In 2005 the Netherlands’ net ODA volume in constant terms increased by 19.8% to reach USD 5.1 billion, representing 0.82% of its GNI. This significant increase reflects a rebound from 2004 when net ODA was depressed by India’s repayment of its loans from the Netherlands. The Netherlands’ target for ODA is 0.8%. Commitment to the MDGs. Poverty reduction is the dominant overarching objective of Dutch foreign policy as a whole and development co-operation in particular. The PRSP framework is seen as a primary mechanism which guides Dutch strategy, assists in implementing programmes, provides a basis for monitoring and evaluation and serves as an essential forum for policy dialogue. In relation to its contribution to specific MDG targets, the Netherlands focuses on those relating to education, HIV/ AIDS, reproductive health and rights, the environment and water.
