OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Ireland 2014

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Ireland 2014

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 vision and policies for development co-operation

Ireland's clear policy vision for fighting global hunger and poverty, which is rooted in public support, is a major strength of its development co-operation. Strong public and political support have also enabled the government to deliver on its development policy commitments since the last peer review despite a very challenging economic context. Wide consultation during the preparation of the 2013 development policy, One World, One Future, mobilised wide ownership of the policy across government, Irish civil society organisations and the public.
