Eurodad Manager Examines OECD’s Preliminary 2017 ODA Figures, International Aid Targets

Eurodad: 2017 development aid figures: A half empty mixed bag
Jeroen Kwakkenbos, policy and advocacy manager at Eurodad, discusses OECD’s preliminary figures on 2017 Official Development Assistance (ODA) and international targets. Kwakkenbos writes, “Given the problems with ODA reporting the question arises: is it still worth maintaining this pot of money along with its 0.7 percent target? The answer is a resounding yes. The issue with ODA lies primarily in the fact that the methods to assess its quantity are not directly linked to the methods and principles that assess its quality” (4/19).
