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.



Towards a comprehensive Australian development effort

Australia is making great efforts to promote development through avenues other than its aid programme: it is engaging more strategically on global issues internationally, and contributes through high-level political leadership to implementing global public policies such as climate change and peace and stability. Australia’s ambition to match its growing weight in the global economy with shouldering a fair share of the burden in addressing global development challenges is commendable.
