Disasters > Tsunami > Total aid package > Per $ GDP: Countries Compared

DEFINITION: This is a chart of the total aid coming in from the following countries. It includes the funds pledged by the respective governments and the amounts collected by NGOs and the public (as of Saturday, Jan 22nd, 2005 - 06:30 PM GMT). Aid" is an ambiguous term that may cover a wide variety of methods, such as 'soft' loans or 'tied aid', where the money has to be spent buying goods ands services from the donating country. The numbers below also represent only the pledged contributions. Arguably, only funds that are actually transferred should be counted. For example, after the Bam earthquake in December 2003, the Iranian government received only USD 17.5 million of the USD one billion that was promised. Per $ GDP figures expressed per $1 billion of Gross Domestic Product.
