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 Portugal’s net ODA came to USD 377 million. This represents a decrease in real terms over 2004 of 64.1% due to the exceptional debt relief for Angola that year. The ODA/GNI ratio also fell from 0.63% to 0.21%. Commitment to the MDGs. Portugal’s ODA focuses on the five Portuguese-speaking African countries and Timor-Leste, all of which are LDCs. In November 2005 the Council of Ministers approved a new strategy for development co-operation which makes commitment to the MDGs one of its five guiding principles. Specific steps and a calendar to reinforce the integration of poverty reduction throughout Portugal’s development co-operation programme have since been adopted.
