Breakdown of ODA by ministry in 2020

In 2020, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs managed 82.20% of ODA, i.e. EUR 326.28 million (of which EUR 317.23 million was managed by the Directorate for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Affairs).

The remaining 17.80% came from contributions made by the Ministry of Finance (10.04%), the Ministry of Health (0.06%), the Ministry of Culture (0.03%), and the share of Luxembourg’s contribution to the EU’s general budget – apart from the European Development Fund (EDF) – allocated by the European Commission for the purposes of development cooperation in 2020 (EUR 30.43 million, i.e. 7.67% of Luxembourg’s ODA).

We should note in this respect that Luxembourg’s assistance via all the EU’s bodies, including Luxembourg’s contribution to the EDF, amounted to EUR 43.07 million.
