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.

Fighting corruption and illicit financial flows

Corruption and the illicit transfer of funds out of developing countries can undermine sustainable development by reducing the resources available for essential public services, undermining a country’s capacity to attract investors and fuel the economy, and weakening the trust between citizen and state. As illicit flows are often transnational problems, all countries involved – whether developing or OECD – need to work together. This chapter reviews OECD country performance in tackling money laundering and bribery and in repatriating stolen assets. It looks at what could be done to close legal loopholes, strengthen political will and enforce more serious penalties for non-compliance. Development co-operation can also do more to help developing countries fulfil their own responsibilities, such as strengthening governance systems for detecting and reducing corruption; requesting asset repatriation; and bringing to justice those found guilty of corruption, theft of public resources and money laundering.
