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.

    Context of Switzerland's Peer Review

    The Swiss Confederation is a federal republic with a population of 8 million. It is a consensus driven society, and its political system is characterised by decentralisation and direct democracy. There is strong pressure on federal departments, including those engaged in development policy, to justify policy choices to citizens. Referendums are mandatory for amendments to the federal constitution and for joining international organisations, for example. Referendums can also be called by citizens wishing to challenge laws passed by parliament if they gather 50 000 signatures within 100 days. Swiss NGOs successfully used the petition system with their 2007 campaign for Switzerland to adopt the target of spending 0.7% of gross national income (GNI) on official development assistance (ODA): over 200 000 people signed the petition and in 2011 a majority in parliament approved a target ODA/GNI ratio of 0.5% by 2015.

    The DAC's main findings and recommendations

    Switzerland is well positioned to contribute to global development through a diverse range of channels, including its growing official development assistance. The Federal Council and the Swiss parliament made achieving sustainable global development, poverty reduction and mitigating global risks a central and unified strategic goal of Switzerland’s international co-operation for 2013-16. This is a major achievement, and a good step towards ensuring a comprehensive and coherent Swiss approach to development.
