This annual report is the key reference document for statistics and analysis on the latest trends in international aid. It is of particular importance this year as the world reflects on progress in development five years after the UN Millennium Summit set a series of goals to be reached by 2015, and considers the contribution that donors can make to improve results.

In addition to the statistical tables, Chapter 1 contains an overview by the Chair of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), this year looking in particular at progress towards the Millennium Development Goals, the links between security and development, and the volume, allocation and effectiveness of aid. This is followed in Chapter 2 by a look at aid trends from the point of view of the recipients of aid, plus a special focus on aid to the water sector and on the role of remittances. Chapter 3 underpins the opening chapter with more detailed analysis of the Millennium Goals, conflict prevention and peace building, and DAC’s important work programme around aid effectiveness, which will lead to a High-Level Forum in Paris on 28 February-2 March 2005. Chapter 4 gives an accessible breakdown by donor of the main features of the programmes of all members of the DAC, with information on the programmes of some other bilateral donors, notably other members of the OECD. A separate section, “The DAC at Work”, gives an overview of the work of the DAC and of its various subsidiary bodies.
