The Development Assistance Committee is taking a fresh look at all forms of external financing for development and their measurement.
Development aid fell by 4% in real terms in 2012, following a 2% fall in 2011. There is also a noticeable shift in aid away from the poorest countries and towards middle-income countries.
Non-ODA flows accounted for 80% of total resource flows to developing countries in 2012. See this introduction to non-ODA flows (e.g. composition, geographical distribution) and the current work to improve DAC statistics in this domain.
We collect and publish data on development finance to monitor how it responds to development issues.
