The Development Co-operation Report is the key annual reference document for statistics and analysis on trends in international aid. This year, the Development Co-operation Report 2012 seeks to provide insights into how to address today’s sustainable development challenges, with a focus on inclusiveness and good governance to ensure that our finite resources are equitably distributed, now and in the future.

Sharing finite resources among a growing number people – and consumers – is a critical challenge. It is in this spirit that J. Brian Atwood, Chair of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), invited several intellectual leaders on the challenges of inclusive, sustainable development to contribute to this year’s report.

In 2011, Denmark’s net ODA amounted to USD 2.98 billion. Compared to 2010, this figure is a nominal increase of 3.8%, but a drop in real terms of 2.4%. This follows a period when Denmark’s ODA grew at an average annual real growth rate of 2% (between 2007 and 2010). In the context of a freeze in Danish public spending for the period 2011-13, Denmark planned to sustain ODA at the 2010 nominal level (in DKK) until 2013, but fell short of this by 1% in 2011.
