OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: France 2018

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: France 2018

The OECD's Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each DAC 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.

This review analyses the performance of France, including its efforts towards international stability and climate financing, as well as the impact of the grant-loan composition and the cross-government management of its aid programme.

The DAC's main findings and recommendations

France is a leading player on the global stage in promoting international stability. Since 2015, the country has been spearheading efforts to promote, implement and encourage accession to the Paris Climate Agreement, and consistently prioritises climate change financing. In the economic field, France has made progress in the fight against corruption and illicit capital flows. It has designed successful and innovative development financing mechanisms and now has a wide range of instruments to support its co-operation. Despite successive falls in its official development assistance (ODA) since the last review, it committed in 2017 to a steady increase to bring its ODA to 0.55% of its gross national income by 2022.
