ODI Background Notes:
“A large majority of poor people (around three quarters) live in Very Low Aid or Low Aid Countries (VLACs and LACs) and have done for at least two decades.
7 out of 10 of the world’s poorest countries have seen aid levels fall as a proportion of GNI.
More poor people, not fewer, now live in countries more dependent on aid.
About three quarters of the world’s poorest live in countries that receive less than 2% of their annual income in aid”.
