The OECD 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.



Managing the Czech Republic's development co-operation

The Czech Republic has a sound institutional structure and system for development co-operation. It has built up several assets, including political and strategic leadership at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; an inter-ministerial Council for Development Cooperation for exchanging information and building cross-government ownership of the programme; and the Czech Development Agency, which is recognised as a capable implementing body. Nevertheless, while the institutional system is conducive to quality development co-operation, the system is also vulnerable due to capacity and resource constraints. A more systematic whole of government approach that promotes synergies among Czech activities could reinforce the impact of development co-operation in partner countries or territories.
