HOW DOES

YOUR COUNTRY

MEASURE UP?

When it comes to aid donors' performance,
we look at three areas:

AID VOLUME

The amount of foreign aid provided

Aid as a proportion of national income



AID TARGETING

How well donors prioritise the areas most in need

Aid to least developed countries Aid to social sectors Aid to gender equality



AID QUALITY

How effectively and transparently donors spend aid

CORE AID TRANSPARENCY Alignment with partner countries

THIS MATTER?

CRUNCHING

THE NUMBERS


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).
