In 2015, Azerbaijan’s net ODA amounted to USD 13 million, compared to USD 16 million in 2014. The ratio of ODA as a share of GNI remained unchanged at 0.02%.
Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for setting the overall development co-operation guidelines of the country. Project implementation is the responsibility of the Azerbaijan International Development Agency (AIDA), which was established in 2011 within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The AIDA’s annual budget allocation is provided from the state budget. The AIDA co-ordinates the activities of all relevant government bodies in the field of development, ensuring
that their activities are consistent with Azerbaijan’s foreign policy objectives.
In 2015, Azerbaijan provided its bilateral co-operation mostly to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The main sectors for Azerbaijan’s bilateral development co-operation were humanitarian aid, governance and civil society, and other social infrastructure.
Multilateral ODA accounted for 45% of Azerbaijan’s net disbursements in 2015, provided primarily through the regional development banks (accounting for 58% of multilateral ODA in 2015).
Azerbaijan is an invitee to the Development Assistance Committee since 2017. In 2016, the country reported for the first time to the OECD figures on its development co-operation programme (on its 2014 and 2015 flows).
