AidWatch 2017

CONCORD

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

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.
