Ahead of the DAC high-level meeting, CONCORD encourages the OECD to ensure aid maintains a laser focus on eradicating poverty and sustainable development for all. The outcomes of the meeting could reinforce current worrying trends for EU aid: decrease of aid to least developed countries, increase of conditionality and securitisation of aid as well as an increase of in-donor country costs reported.
With only genuine aid being accounted, it would take the EU and its Member States another 30 years to reach their commitment to 0.7% GNI, reveals the CONCORD AidWatch report 2017 “EU Aid Uncovered – how to reach the target on time” published today.
