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, Portugal’s net ODA reached USD 669 million. In comparison to 2010, this figure represents an increase in nominal terms of 3.1%, but a decrease in real terms of 3%. This reduction in net ODA is comparable to the average drop for all DAC members: 2.7% in real terms. Portugal’s ODA remained relatively stable in 2011; there were much greater variations in 2008 (+23%), 2009 (–15%) and 2010 (+32%) (all rates in real terms).
