UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) data is collected and reported according to a standard international classification produced by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

According to this classification eleven percent of DFID’s bilateral ODA was channelled through UK or other donor country-based NGOs in 2017, the latest published year of ODA statistics.

Data that disaggregates other delivery partners - such as private sector institutions and research institutions - into local and national are not produced in the ODA statistics.
