OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: New Zealand 2015

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.



New Zealand's humanitarian assistance

New Zealand’s aid is focused on the Pacific – the region where New Zealand can clearly add most value – and this also guides its humanitarian policy. New Zealand’s approach to recovery and resilience is also built on its comparative advantage, leveraging domestic experience in reducing disaster and climate risks to help design and implement resilience programmes in the Pacific, and closely linking disaster recovery to existing bilateral programmes. However, New Zealand remains a small humanitarian donor, both in absolute volume and in percentage of total ODA; there is scope for more effort in this area.
