The OECD 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.



Portugal's humanitarian assistance

Portugal could consider how to use its domestic crisis preparedness skills to more systematically build the capacity of civil protection services in partner countries – this might be a useful focus area for the new strategic framework for the humanitarian programme. Setting out such a framework would also allow Portugal to advocate for a dedicated humanitarian budget line, and thus increase its overall humanitarian volume, in line with international burden-sharing agreements.
