The OECD’s 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.



Managing New Zealand's development co-operation

The re-integration of the International Development Group into the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has prompted significant organisational reform. The structure is now aligned to new priorities. Business processes have been streamlined. Integration within the ministry has also facilitated some improved whole-of-government working practices. However, there is room for improvement in the form of whole-ofgovernment strategies in partner countries. Design and decision making have not been further decentralised to the field. Systems have not kept pace with broader organisational changes and management needs.
