6 Nations Meet Or Exceed International Aid Spending Target Of 0.7% In 2015, OECD Report Says

The Guardian: U.K. among six countries to hit 0.7% U.N. aid spending target
“Britain was one of six major donors that met or exceeded the U.N.’s target for international aid spending in the most recent year for which final data is available, according to official figures published on Wednesday. Against the backdrop of a major onslaught from aid critics, data compiled by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) showed that U.K. aid spending in 2015, which totaled 0.7 percent of gross national income, was exceeded by only five countries: Denmark (0.85 percent), the Netherlands (0.75 percent), Norway (1.05 percent), Luxembourg (0.95 percent) and Sweden (1.4 percent)…” (Quinn, 1/4).
