OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Australia 2013

The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each member are critically examined approximately once every five years. DAC peer reviews assess the performance of a given member, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examine both policy and implementation. They take an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.

Hide / Show Abstract

Clear political directives, policies and strategies shape Australia’s development co-operation and are in line with international commitments and guidance. The 2008 peer review applauded Australia’s strategic focus on poverty reduction and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and its continuous engagement in fragile and conflict-affected states. Since then, Australia has made considerable progress in "institutionalising" its policy in An Effective Aid Program for Australia. This is supported by a four-year strategy to guide future increases in the aid budget - the Comprehensive Aid Policy Framework, which lasts until 2016.
