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 Germany's official development assistance

The German government has reaffirmed its commitment to meet the UN target of allocating 0.7% of its gross national income (GNI) as ODA and has announced important increases in its aid budget between 2014 and 2019. In 2014, German net ODA reached a historic high, bringing the ODA/GNI ratio from 0.38% to 0.41%. However, in light of Germany’s economic growth, further planned increases will only be sufficient to maintain ODA at a minimum level of 0.4% as a percentage of GNI, far from the 0.7% target. Germany has yet to adopt a timeline for meeting its ODA/GNI commitment.
