The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. This peer review of Ireland reviews its development policies and programmes. It assesses not just the performance of its development co-operation agency, but also policy and implementation. It takes an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.

Allocating Ireland's official development assistance

The solid commitment and efforts of the government, backed by Irish taxpayers, to meet Ireland's ODA targets during a tough economic period is impressive. Ireland's ODA budget declined substantially following the last peer review and did not manage to reach 0.7% ODA/GNI by 2012. However, Ireland did meet its 2010 aid target of 0.51%. It remains committed to meet the 0.7% ODA/GNI target and can reinforce its credibility with respect to meeting this target by defining a plan and timeline. Ireland complies with DAC recommendations on aid. However, it could improve the timeliness and quality of its statistical reporting on aid to the OECD.
