Development Policy Centre Policy Brief No. 7
Global aid has fallen in each of the last two years. Will 2013 be another year of cuts? Based on public information from the 15 largest donors, we estimate the direction and magnitude of changes in global aid from 2012 to 2013. The 2013 spending outcome is likely to show marginal growth relative to 2012 but the medium-term outlook is for further contraction.
