Map of aid donors

Thumbnail ODA mapMapping Worlds has produced a fascinating new map of the world showing countries in proportion to the amount of aid they give, and the amount they would give if they met the target of 0.7% of GDP.

  1. Owen,

    Perhaps you can clarify. Does this particular map reflect foreign aid such as the cost of time, manpower, and material provided by the US as a result of natural disasters? The most recent of course would be the US military response to the tsunami in 12/04. The costs of such operations are staggering and should be included in “aid” numbers reported. Maybe not this particular chart but definitely in the “all aid” number which I am sure exists somewhere.

    Best.

    Owen replies: it looks to me as if this map shows aid as measured by the internationally agreed definition, known as Overseas Development Assistance (ODA).
