General trends in multilateral aid

This chapter addresses recent trends in multilateral aid. The overriding trend is one of decline in aid volumes after the historic high of 2009. The picture in reality is more complex depending on whether aid is earmarked or not and the changing development landscape. The chapter then considers the five big groupings of multilateral organisations that account for the vast majority of aid. The final section discusses non-DAC donor multilateral aid, then concludes.
