As a percentage of their combined gross national incomes, ODA to developing countries and least developed countries in general declined 4 per cent in real terms in 2012 following a 3 per cent decline in 2011

Donors, still well short of their official development assistance (ODA) commitments to developing countries and least developed countries, are unlikely to substantially increase funding in the short to medium term. As a percentage of their combined gross national incomes, ODA to developing countries and least developed countries in general declined 4 per cent in real terms in 2012 following a 3 per cent decline in 2011. In real terms, bilateral ODA to Africa also declined in 2012. Total ODA to all African landlocked developing countries increased an average of only 2 per cent in nominal terms over 2009–2010. These trends can be attributed in part to the sovereign debt crisis and are likely to continue into 2016. Cutbacks in ODA were evident in highly affected Eurozone crisis countries such as Spain and Portugal.
