Principled Aid Index
This index ranks bilateral Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors by how they use their official development assistance (ODA) to pursue their long-term national interest in a safer, sustainable and more prosperous world.
A principled approach targets aid to countries that need it most, supports global cooperation and adopts a public spirited focus on development impact rather than a short-sighted domestic return.
Use the toggles to view donor performance against each dimension of a principled approach, and to explore the relationship between their rankings and aid quantity. Select a donor country to see how its performance has changed over time and to understand what’s driving its score.
