In 2015, country programmable aid amounted to 49 per cent of total gross bilateral official development assistance (ODA), or $52 billion, as compared to 53 to 55 per cent in the five previous years. In 2016, general and sector budget support amounted to 1.9 per cent of total bilateral aid commitments of DAC donors. ODA spent within donor countries—such as refugee costs, scholarships and administrative costs—accounts for a growing share, increasing from 12 per cent of bilateral aid in 2010 to 20 per cent in 2016.
