OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: United States 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

As the largest bilateral donor of the DAC, the United States’ official development assistance (ODA) constitutes a significant share of global development co-operation funding. Its ODA volume has been broadly maintained since 2010, despite falling by USD 2 billion in 2015 (in real terms) from a record high of USD 33.1 billion in 2014 – a 7% drop. However, US ODA levels have not matched its economic recovery. While transparency has increased, the unpredictable nature of US ODA creates uncertainties for its partners.
