Official Overseas Aid

Net official development assistance

In 2004, New Zealand contributed US$210 million of net official development assistance (ODA). New Zealand’s ODA increased 8.2 percent in real terms between 2003 and 2004, and included significant grants to South Pacific agencies. Of the 22 Development Assistance Committee (DAC) members, New Zealand’s contribution was the smallest in actual terms, just behind Luxembourg. The United States contributed the largest amount in actual terms, US$19 billion.

The DAC is a key forum of major bilateral donors within the OECD which works to increase the effectiveness of their common efforts to support sustainable development.
