image of Development Co-operation Report 2014

The Development Co-operation Report (DCR) is a yearly report by the Chair of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) that addresses important challenges for the international development community and provides practical guidance and recommendations on how to tackle them. Moreover, it reports the profiles and performance of DAC development co-operation providers and presents DAC statistics on official development assistance (ODA) and private resource flows.

The Development Co-operation Report 2014: Mobilising resources for sustainable development is the second in a trilogy (2013-15) focusing on “Global Development Co-operation Post-2015: Managing Interdependence”. The report provides an overview of the sources of finance available to developing countries and proposes recommendations on how to mobilise further resources. It also explores how to mobilise resources to finance the provision of global public goods: for example, to combat climate change, promote peace and security, and create a fair and equal trading system.

Development Assistance Committee members' ODA performance in 2013

According to preliminary data, in 2013 member countries of the Development Assistance Committee provided USD 134.8 billion in net official development assistance (ODA), representing 0.30% of their combined gross national income (GNI). Despite continued pressure on budgets in OECD countries, ODA rose by 6.1% in real terms compared to 2012, marking a rebound after two years of falling volumes, as a number of governments stepped up their ODA spending. ODA grew steadily from 1997 to a first peak in 2010, but fell in 2011 and 2012 as many governments took austerity measures and trimmed their aid budgets.
