OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Poland 2017

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Poland 2017

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.

This review assesses the performance of Poland, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examines both policy and implementation. It takes an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of Poland.



Context of the peer review of Poland

Poland celebrated its 20th anniversary as an OECD member in 2016. On this occasion, it emphasised that the central objective of its active membership of the OECD is “working together to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world”. Over the past 20 years, Poland has experienced significant economic growth and development. It is for example, catching up with other OECD countries in terms of GDP per capita, which stood at USD 25 825 in 2015 (OECD, 2016a; OECD, 2016b).
