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.


Ireland's humanitarian assistance

Ireland has a comprehensive approach to humanitarian response, risk reduction and recovery, as reflected in both its humanitarian and development policies. There is a holistic effort to support recovery across programme design and funding mechanisms. Ireland has embraced a strong commitment to building resilience and has successfully embedded that commitment across its programmes and processes; other donors could learn from this. The humanitarian share of the overall ODA budget has remained stable throughout the current crisis. On the global stage, Ireland continues to punch above its weight on humanitarian and resilience issues.
