Breakdown of ODA by type of cooperation in 2022

The table breakdown of gross ODA gives the distribution by type of cooperation of all Luxembourg’s 2022 ODA expenditure, following the rules of the DAC.

This reveals that bilateral cooperation, as defined by the DAC, represents 70.66% of all expenditure (DCF and budget items), while 29.34% was expended on multilateral cooperation.

Humanitarian aid, which is included in bilateral cooperation, was 17.39% of ODA in 2022.

NGOs administered a fifth of Luxembourg’s ODA (20.73%), of which 15.46% 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).
