Allocating Italy's official development assistance

Italy remains committed to reach the UN target of 0.7% ODA/GNI eventually. However, Italian ODA experienced a steady decline between 2008 and 2012, dropping from USD 4.86 billion to USD 2.74 billion. Italian ODA represented 0.14% of its gross national income (GNI) in 2012, down from 0.22% in 2008. The government has reversed this negative trend: it increased the ODA level in 2013 and 2014 and committed to steadily raise the ODA/GNI ratio to 0.28/0.31% in 2017 – a positive signal. It is also encouraging that Italy has taken steps to provide forward-looking information on ODA.
