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 humanitarian assistance

Denmark is updating its humanitarian strategy. This provides a good opportunity to consolidate progress towards coherent humanitarian and development approaches and to integrate the new thinking to emerge from the World Humanitarian Summit in policy work. Denmark will need to make sure that humanitarian principles are respected in the new approach, especially as it expands its programming to tackle the root causes of crises. So far, the humanitarian budget has been protected from overall official development assistance (ODA) cuts; if it is to remain a predictable partner and influential donor on the global stage, Denmark will need to ensure that its budget at least remains stable in the future.
