Breakdown of ODA by intervention sector in 2022

The table ODA by sector gives the breakdown by sector of all Luxembourg ODA expenditure in 2022.

In 2022, the Luxembourg Development Cooperation continued to focus on sectors falling into the category of infrastructure and social services, which made up 27.73% of total aid (and 36.72% of bilateral aid). Education, health, policy on population/health and reproductive health, water distribution and sanitation, support for governance and civil society as well as infrastructure and various social services all fall within that category.

The humanitarian aid category accounts for 17.39% of aid (24.56% of bilateral aid) and development food aid accounts for 3.17% of aid (4.49% of bilateral aid).

The category of infrastructure and economic services made up 6.85% of aid (9.70% of bilateral aid), the two main sub-categories being investments in the sector of banks and financial services (inclusive finance) and the communications sub-category.

The production sector category made up 5.97% of ODA in 2022 (8.09% of bilateral aid), mainly allocated to agriculture, forestry and fisheries.

Support for multi-sector and cross-cutting issues represented 2.06% of ODA (2.57% of bilateral aid).

Finally, we should note that, under multilateral ODA, the majority of the investments (92.25%) cannot be allocated to a precise sector. This is due to the nature of multilateral aid, which is made of up direct contributions, both mandatory and voluntary, to the multilateral agencies’ general budget.
