What is the current situation in the world?

Aid is currently shifting away from the poorest countries. There has been a 2.4 per cent real increase in country programmable aid in 2014, mainly due to continued increases by some donors, and in soft loans from multilateral organizations.

Aid has increased from some non-official development assistance (ODA) countries. Turkey increased its net ODA by 30 per cent in real terms compared to 2012.
