DAC Peer Review of the United Kingdom
OECD
This review contains the Main Findings and Recommendations of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) and the report of the Secretariat. It was prepared with examiners from the United States and Italy for the Peer Review meeting held on 31 May 2006. The review welcomed the United Kingdom’s strong commitment to the Millennium Development Goals and to increase development aid to 0.7% of its Gross National Income by 2013. The Committee recognised the effectiveness of the United Kingdom’s distinctive development co-operation model, characterised by a strong legislative basis, clarity of mission and unified programme under a Cabinet Minister. It identified several opportunities (e.g. new tactics in working with donors, identifying policy coherence priorities, more strategic involvement of civil society, greater institutional clarity around humanitarian aid) to make improvements that would better place UK development co-operation to address the future challenges of scaling up aid volume, moving into more difficult operational environments in fragile states and clearly demonstrating development results.

DAC Peer Review of the Netherlands
OECD
This review contains the Main Findings and Recommendations of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) and the report of the Secretariat. It was prepared with examiners from Sweden and Japan for the Peer Review meeting held on 12 September 2006. The review welcomed the Netherlands’ strong commitment to policy coherence for development and to maintaining high levels of development aid. The Committee noted that the Netherlands gives strong attention to issues of aid quality and uses innovative approaches to enable recipient countries to lead their own development agenda. It identified a number of recommendations (e.g. continuing efforts towards geographic and sector concentration, ensuring that spending targets do not jeopardise the principles of aid effectiveness, developing a more coherent strategy with respect to private sector development, and developing overall aid effectiveness and conditionality strategies) to assist the Netherlands in pursuing its efforts to improve the effectiveness of its development co-operation programmes.
