The Scorecards rank the 20 largest bilateral OECD DAC donors, plus the European Institutions. Donor performance is assessed using a ‘distance to target’ approach, which looks at the distance travelled by a donor towards the different objectives, which are based on international commitments or policy targets set by ONE.
Distances are expressed as the percentage of the target already achieved (ranging from 0% to 100%). For each of the three pillars (aid quantity, targeting and quality), scores are an average of their respective indicators (equally weighted). These scores are used to rank donors for each pillar.
The overall ranking is produced by assigning half of the weight to how much donors spend (50% for aid volume) and the other half to how well they spend their ODA (25% for aid targeting and 25% for aid quality).
