OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Denmark 2016

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.



Allocating Denmark's official development assistance

Over the past five years, and indeed since the 1970’s, Denmark has exceeded its international commitment of providing 0.7% of its gross national income (GNI) as official development assistance (ODA). However, the decision to cut the overall ODA budget, followed by the rising and unpredictable costs of helping refugees within Denmark, has halved funding available for spending overseas on bilateral and multilateral programmes. These shifts in ODA volume and composition will likely affect Denmark’s reputation as a generous and predictable donor.
