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.



Denmark's development co-operation delivery and partnerships

In a context of decreasing attention to aid effectiveness, Denmark is a strong advocate for, and adherent to, the Busan Principles for effective development co-operation. Commitment-based budgeting allows Denmark to provide its priority countries and territories with predictable, multi-year funding. Meanwhile, detailed risk assessments and budgetary flexibility within the results framework give embassies the capacity to adjust as contexts change, and seize opportunities as they arise. However, the highly labour intensive two-year programming cycle affects timely implementation. Further efforts to anticipate the impact of risks on development outcomes would also increase the quality of programming.
