Tanzania no. 1 at $189mn, up slightly from $181mn in the previous year.
Ethiopia no. 2 at $181mn, down from $208mn in the previous year.
Congo (DRC) up sharply to no. 3, at $157mn, compared to $62mn in the previous year. Due to large debt relief (approx. $65mn).
Cote d’Ivoire up sharply to no. 4 at $147mn, compared to $31mn in the previous year, almost entirely due to large debt relief (approx. $145mn).
Haiti down sharply from $205mn in the previous year to $139mn.
Afghanistan down from $163mn in the previous year to $132mn.
Mali up from $80mn in the previous year to $119mn.
This is a preliminary post, while we update our time-series data. All figures are in Canadian dollars and on a Canadian fiscal year basis, and therefore may have slight differences compared to OECD-DAC figures (in US$ and calendar year basis). All data come directly from Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD).
Figure 1. Where did Canada’s aid go in 2012-13? (Click to enlarge)
Can you give us a complete breakdown of where all of our $4 Billion aid money is spent? for example, is the cost of CIDA now DFATD development covered from this, and how much does that cost?
The admin costs of aid delivery are included in the figs. The breakout is typically available from the OECD DAC only.
Historically in the case of Canada these range from 7 to 11%
We will have a more detailed updated soon.
Thank you for the question!
