The DAC at Work

The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) is the key forum in which the major bilateral donors work together to co-ordinate development co-operation and to increase the effectiveness of their efforts to support sustainable development. The DAC is one of the main committees of the OECD, and has 23 members. The DAC, however, has three features which distinguish it from other committees within the OECD Secretariat. First, it meets more frequently than other OECD committees (about 15 times a year) and the Chair is based at OECD headquarters in Paris. Second, the DAC has the power to make binding recommendations in matters within its competence, to countries on the Committee as well as to the Council (e.g. DAC Recommendation on Untying ODA to the Least Developed Countries, 2001). Third, the Chair issues an annual report on the efforts and policies of DAC members. This report is the key annual reference document for statistics and analyses on the latest trends in international aid.
