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.



Poland's humanitarian assistance

Poland has a solid policy and strategic humanitarian framework. Within its limited budget, Poland has clear priorities which shape its humanitarian assistance. However, Poland’s humanitarian aid could be more coherent with its development co-operation objectives, notably in Ukraine where Poland is using a broad spectrum of instruments to respond to the crisis. Poland is becoming a more ambitious humanitarian donor, particularly in Africa. Within the existing budget Poland should avoid fragmentation and continue focusing on a few priorities where it can play a valuable role during a humanitarian and crisis response.
