Italy's development co-operation delivery and partnerships

Italy has made substantial efforts to meet some of the 2009 peer review recommendations: it has approved new guidelines on budget support, country systems and programme approaches, and increased aid untying. It has a new risk management approach and a marker on aid effectiveness, which could contribute to improving the delivery of the programme if closely monitored. In spite of this, Italy lagged behind with respect to implementing the aid effectiveness principles in the period leading to the OECD 2011 monitoring survey. A large share of Italian development aid continues to be delivered as project-type interventions using Italy’s procedures, and Italian aid is still unpredictable and inflexible with respect to the allocation of programme funds across sectors.
