As a member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), Austria is obliged to report on the volume of its official development assistance each year. This is the only way to ascertain whether and how far DAC member states have achieved the agreed objectives.
Official development assistance (ODA) is made up of disbursements of public funds to developing countries that meet certain DAC criteria, which it sets to ensure the international comparability of results. Its standards, definitions and provisions for recording statistics on ODA and flows of other development finance are set out in the Statistical Reporting Directives.
Based on these statistical reports, the OECD Development Assistance Committee publishes the annual results for international comparison: The first ODA trends with provisional data on any year are published in spring of the subsequent year. The detailed final results of official development assistance from individual countries are then published in the Development Co-operation Report at the end of the year.
