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 vision and policies for development co-operation

Denmark’s development co-operation strategy, The Right to a Better Life, is a widely owned strategy setting out the overall purpose and priorities of Denmark’s development co-operation. However, its broad definition has meant many sub-strategies and extensive management guidelines were needed to facilitate implementation. As Denmark drafts a new strategy for development co-operation, more operationally oriented language would help it position the strategy within the Sustainable Development Goals, prioritise, limit the number of the sub-strategies and select the right instruments to achieve its development objectives.
