The OECD Development Assistance Committee's annual report on international aid.  This year's edition includes an overview by the DAC Chairman reviewing recent trends in aid volume, allocation, and effectiveness.  Special chapters on Effective Aid Management and Aid Effectiveness examine DAC experience in these areas. Individual chapters for each donor country summarise 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.

Efforts and Policies of Bilateral Donors

The Millennium Development Goals remain central to donor policies. By supporting country-led national poverty reduction strategies, donors contribute to reducing poverty – in the poorest as well as in middle-income countries. The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness impacts the way in which donors do their business: they have developed action plans to implement the agenda and many are undertaking significant reforms. Donors pay particular attention to ownership, alignment and harmonisation, and some efforts are also being made in managing for development results. Several report on their aid effectiveness achievements, showing that some individual donor progress has been achieved. Securing gender equality is a priority for all donors: many have developed specific gender equality policies, action plans and guidance for field level implementation. Gender equality is both a horizontal issue and a sector issue with funding allocated for this purpose. Violence against women, women in conflict situations, and rights of girls and women are key areas of intervention.
