This publication provides insights on the successes and failures of the EU to ensure member states to make significant progress towards the aid targets: what is the development aid budget used for? For whom? And how?
This edition of the yearly publication suggests that the EU could take a generation to meet the 0.7% ODA/GNI target at the current rate of growth. While 2016 saw a substantial increase of 27% in development spending, there has also been a relatively dramatic increase in reporting of inflated aid, such as in-donor costs or debt relief.
