I. Luxembourg’s official development assistance in 2014

Breakdown of ODA by type of cooperation in 2014

The table below gives the distribution by type of cooperation of all Luxembourg’s 2014 ODA expenditure, following the rules of the DAC. 

This reveals that bilateral cooperation (as defined by DAC) represents 72,10% of all expenditure (DCF and budget items) against 27,90% expended on multilateral cooperation.

Humanitarian aid, which is included in bilateral cooperation, was 12,58% of ODA in 2014.

NGOs administered over a quarter of bilateral cooperation (27,92%) and a fifth (20,13%) of global Luxembourg’s official development assistance.

The difference between gross and net ODA can be explained by the reimbursements made to the Development Cooperation Fund (DCF) or direct to the State Treasury during the year (cf. The Development Cooperation Fund in 2014).
