Development Priorities: 

This issues brief explains how the DAC has been engaging with providers of development co-operation beyond its membership - especially in the field of statistics - and gives an overview of their development co-operation flows. It also proposes greater collaboration among all bilateral providers to complete the picture of international development co-operation.

The total gross development co-operation provided by 27 countries beyond the DAC reached USD 23.5 billion in 2013, up from USD 11.4 billion in 2010 (see Table 2). As a percentage of total global development co-operation, this represented between 7% and 9% in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and increased to 13% in 2013.
