OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Belgium 2015

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Belgium 2015

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. Since the 2010 peer review, Belgium has reinforced the leadership and management of its institutional system for development co-operation, making it more strategic and taking steps towards delivering more co-ordinated and high quality development co-operation.

Managing Belgium's development co-operation

Institutional reform has strengthened DGD’s capacity to steer and oversee Belgian development co-operation. Nevertheless, as the context and role of development co-operation continue to evolve, DGD and other Belgian actors will need to strengthen their co-ordination in order to maximise synergies and translate them into activities in the field. Further efforts to decentralise development co-operation and to adapt BTC’s business model should help Belgium improve the effectiveness of its assistance.
