Development Co-operation Report 2010

The Development Co-operation Report, issued by the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), is the key annual reference for statistics and analysis on the latest trends in international aid.

With only five years left to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), much remains to be done. The task has become even more challenging given the economic, food and climate change crises of recent years. This report describes how the DAC has responded swiftly, putting the development dimension of these crises firmly on the political agenda and keeping the development community focused on providing more aid, and delivering it more effectively.

In times of economic uncertainty, it is particularly important for aid to provide value for money, and to ensure that it is not misused. The development community has responded by sharpening its focus on corruption; targeting and communicating clear development impacts; working increasingly through developing countries’ own systems to build capacity; and intensifying efforts in the poorest 30% of developing countries – a critical step toward achieving the MDGs. The report also describes how the DAC member countries intend to make their aid truly effective in the decades to come, by ensuring that climate change is addressed in each of their policy choices and by developing a broader, more inclusive approach.

This report is also published on line to improve the accessibility of key OECD DAC work and to respond to the needs of the aid community by giving prompt and easy access to its analyses and statistics.

Finland

In 2009 Finland completed an analysis of its section of the DAC 2008 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration (OECD, 2008a). This is currently being reviewed by the Foreign Ministry’s inter-departmental working group on aid effectiveness, who will make recommendations for implementing more effective and co-ordinated aid. Finland has established new workshops to allow country teams and aid effectiveness advisors to seek practical solutions for applying the Paris and Accra principles to projects and programmes. The goal is to strengthen the link between policy and aid effectiveness implementation.
