OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Canada 2018

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Canada 2018

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 DAC 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.

Canada's humanitarian assistance

Canada remains a major donor that helps to shape the humanitarian policy landscape. Humanitarian aid is at the top of Canada’s ODA spending, representing 22.3% of its total ODA bilateral commitments on average in 2015-16, well above the DAC average. Based on solid whole-of-government co-ordination, already praised in the last peer review, Canada has further strengthened its integrated response to major crises, such as in the Middle East; its humanitarian budget has kept increasing in recent years; and the Peace and Stabilisation Operations Programme is a good tool to help address the factors that create violence and humanitarian needs.
