Abstract:In 2015, the official development assistance (ODA) of the internationalcommunity has declined as a whole, which also had a negative impact on theassistance volume toward sub-Sahara Africa. Meanwhile, the emerging donors havegradually played a greater role in promoting poverty reduction in Africa. Inparticular, China has set up the BRICS New Development Bank and the“China-Africa Industrial Capacity Cooperation Fund” for the full implementationof the UN sustainable development goals and is actively pursuing trilateraldevelopment cooperation with the United States and African countries. However,in the context of the expected assistance reduction of DAC countries and the enlargedevelopment financing gap in Africa, to improve the integration and efficiencyof aid resources has become an unavoidable problem for the internationalcommunity. In the future, if the size of the existing aid to Africa isdifficult to expand or shrink, expanding the scale of aid for trade, andactively carrying out trilateral development cooperation may be the future ofthe international development assistance toward Africa.
