ODA Decreases For Second Year In Row, ‘Governments Must Re-Prioritize,’ ONE Campaign Policy Officer Says

ONE: Aid levels drop for second year in a row
Jorge Rivera, policy officer at the ONE Campaign, discusses findings from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) preliminary aid statistics for 2018, which show that official development assistance (ODA) decreased for the second year in a row. Rivera writes, “To reverse these concerning trends, people should demand that their governments do better — and governments must re-prioritize so that their aid budgets go to the countries and the people who need it the most” (5/7).
