VNR Indicator: Official development assistance to least developed countries, percentage of ODA

Definition: share of ODA that is directed to least developed countries (World Bank definition).

Objective: to be consistent with Belgian commitments under the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, this indicator should reach 50% in 2019 and in the following years.

UN Target 17.2: Developed countries to implement fully their official development assistance commitments, including the commitment by many developed countries to achieve the target of 0.7 per cent of ODA/GNI to developing countries and 0.15 to 0.20 per cent of ODA/GNI to least developed countries; ODA providers are encouraged to consider setting a target to provide at least 0.20 per cent of ODA/GNI to least developed countries

UNSTAT Indicator 17.2.1: Net official development assistance, total and to least developed countries, as a proportion of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee donors’ gross national income (GNI)
