OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Portugal 2016

The OECD 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

Portugal’s current business model for delivering development co-operation is under pressure. Portugal’s new development agency, Camões I.P., faces challenges in fulfilling its mandate of co-ordinating and supervising Portugal’s multiple development actors. While steps have been taken since the last peer review to strengthen Camões I.P.’s coordinating powers, it does not have input into or oversight over half of Portugal’s bilateral ODA budget. This was also the case for Portugal’s former development agency. One factor hindering its success is constrained human and financial resources, but a more fundamental issue is whether the institute has a realistic mandate.
