Luxembourg’s official development assistance in 2017

Breakdown of ODA by type of cooperation in 2017

The table below gives the distribution by type of cooperation of all Luxembourg’s 2017 ODA expenditure, following the rules of the DAC.

This reveals that bilateral cooperation (as defined by DAC) represents 71,89% of all expenditure (Development Cooperation Fund (DCF) and budget lines) against 28,11% expended on multilateral cooperation. Humanitarian aid, which is included in bilateral cooperation, was 12,87% of ODA in 2017.

NGOs administered almost a fifth of Luxembourg’s official development assistance; 16% of it was administered by Luxembourg NGOs approved by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

The difference between gross and net ODA is due to the reimbursements made to the Development Cooperation Fund (DCF) or directly to the State Treasury during the year (cf. point 5 below).
