The Commonwealth and International Development Aid

The developing countries of the Commonwealth contain 44 per cent of the population of all developing countries; and 80 per cent of the population living in the poorest countries - that is those with an average annual per capita income of less than $200. The flows of official development assistance (ODA) and other resources to the non-oil developing countries do not reflect this predominance of Commonwealth countries among the world's poor. To illustrate, the net receipts of bilateral ODA from the DAC countries to the Commonwealth developing countries amounted to $2.0 billion in 1974, just over 27 per cent of such flows to all non-oil developing countries in that year.
