13 ODA AND THE CHALLENGES FOR LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

17 Recent developments ODA flows have increased but still fall far short of the Monterrey targets. Channelling ODA towards low-income countries and focusing on social spending.
18 Channeling ODA to low-income countries and.. 60 ODA, (Averages) 50 Percentages Low-income countries Lower-middle-income countries Upper-middle-income countries N.B: Does not include Iraq, which accounted for 33% of total ODA in 2005.

20 Recent developments ODA flows have increased but still fall far short of the Monterrey targets. Channelling official assistance towards lower-income countries and focusing on social spending. Latin America and the Caribbean have lost ground in terms of their relative share.
21 Channelling ODA on the basis of income leads to a regional concentration REGIONAL CONCENTRATION OF ODA, (Averages as percentages) Middle East 14% Europe 5% Africa 35% Asia 37% Americas 9% Source: ECLAC on the basis OECD (2007).
22 The Latin America s share of ODA has diminished and has fallen more sharply in upper-middle-income countries Percentage of total ODA Latin America and the Caribbean Lower-middle income Upper-middle-income N.B.: Excludes Iraq.

24 Donations play a significant part in some Caribbean countries and territories THE CARIBBEAN: GRANTS (Percentage of GDP) Belize Guyana Jamaica Suriname Dominica Grenada St. Lucia St. Kitts and Nevis St. Vincent and the Grenadines
25 Recent developments ODA flows have increased but still fall far short of the Monterrey targets. Channelling official assistance towards lower-income countries and focusing on social spending. Latin America and the Caribbean have lost ground in terms of their relative share. Lack of clearly defined objectives, strategies and instruments to support middle-income countries.
26 The effectiveness of ODA depends crucially on: National policies Institutional capacity-building for the design and implementation of economic and social policy Absorption capacity Development and improvement of domestic resource mobilization. Improved competitiveness through changing production patterns and technological innovation. Improved effectiveness and efficiency in social policy ODA management Harmonization of donor policies Coordination with recipient countries development strategies Mutual accountability between donors and recipients Stability of flows
27 There are a number of reasons why the importance of ODA for middle-income countries, particularly those in the region, should not be underestimated: From a national perspective: Slow and volatile growth makes it necessary to guard against economic and social setbacks. Most countries financial and trade linkages with the global economy are vulnerable. Countries do not exhibit an equal capacity to access the international financial system. Institutional weaknesses hinder the implementation of economic and social policies and are an obstacle to social cohesion. Difficulties in building up technological capacities and productive development. Poverty is widespread (60% of the poor and 50% of indigents live in upper-middle-income countries).
28 There are a number of reasons why the importance of ODA for middle-income countries, particularly those in the region, should not be underestimated: The nature of the various components of ODA are also important: Grants to support fiscal stability. Long-term concessional loans not affected by international financial fluctuations to support capital investment. Technical assistance: knowledge transfer.
29 There are a number of reasons why the importance of ODA for middle-income countries, particularly those in the region, should not be underestimated: From a more global viewpoint: Stability and growth in those countries produce significant externalities for the other economies of the region or subregion. Countries can support the provision of global or regional public goods: diffusion of knowledge, trade integration, environmental sustainability. These countries are part of the international aid and cooperation system, and their role as recipients and donors should be strengthened.
30 In addition to benefiting from ODA, middle-income countries should also contribute to the cooperation system Direct ODA donors: Brazil has forgiven debts totalling about US$ 1.15 billion. New financing mechanisms such as global taxes. South-South cooperation: Macroeconomic coordination. Mechanisms to support liquidity in times of crisis. Development financing through regional and subregional development banks. Technical cooperation.
31 The ways in which middle-income countries are integrated into the global economy are important in terms of leveraging ODA Improved access and regulatory frameworks in the international economic system Trade Finance Technology Strengthened representation in global economic institutions.
