Breakdown of ODA by type of cooperation in 2021

This reveals that bilateral cooperation, as defined by the DAC, represents 67.55% of all expenditure (DCF and budget lines), while 32.45% was expended on multilateral cooperation.

Humanitarian aid, which is included in bilateral cooperation, was 13.72% of ODA in 2021.

NGOs administered nearly a fifth of Luxembourg’s ODA (19.17%), of which 15% was administered by Luxembourgish 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).
