Measuring Official Development Assistance. Why and how to change?

Abstract

The concept of official development assistance (ODA), used for forty-five years, has been criticised for just as long, and increasingly so (see in particular Severino & Ray, 2011). At the High Level Meeting of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) in December 2012, the OECD publicly opened the debate. A new measure of development aid is to be proposed by the DAC at the High Level Meeting of December 2014.
