Definitions:
Official development assistance and net official aid (ODA) is the net amount of disbursed grants and concessional loans received by a country less repayments of concessional loans. Grants include gifts of money, goods, or services for which no repayment is required. A concessional loan has a grant element of 25 percent or more. The grant element is the amount by which the face value of the loan exceeds its present market value because of below-market interest rates, favorable maturity schedules, or repayment grace periods. Nonconcessional loans are not a component of ODA. ODA receipts are shown as positive numbers; for some developing countries (e.g., Republic of Korea) the data are shown as negative numbers because of net repayments of concessional loans. The ratios include aid allocated by country only (e.g. for administrative costs, research into development issues, aid to nongovernmental organizations). Regional allocated aid is not included.
