Why participate in the HK Global Development Prize?

This competition provides a platform for you to showcase your ideas and initiatives to contribute to Hong Kong’s international development efforts and shape its role on the global stage. It is also a great opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and communities in need around the world.


What is ODA?

Official Development Assistance (ODA) refers to financial and non-financial resources provided by governments to support the social and economic development of developing countries.

Currently, Hong Kong has a Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) program for emergency events but does not have an Official Development Assistance (ODA) program. ODA can play a crucial role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. One of the key targets of the SDGs is for developed countries to provide 0.7% of their Gross National Income (GNI) as ODA to developing countries. This commitment aims to address global poverty and promote sustainable development worldwide.
