The effectiveness of Official Development Assistance as judged by the French

Published 7 August 2018 in Surveys

French people are harsh judges of the effectiveness of Official Development Assistance (ODA). When asked, only 9% believe ODA to be effective, compared to 35% who say it is ineffective.

Above all, results demonstrate that few people know about ODA in France, which causes a relative indifference. For example, 54% of French people have no opinion on the effectiveness of ODA given by France to the poorest countries.

This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and Birmingham University as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
