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 vision and policies for development co-operation

Portugal has a long-term vision for its development programme that is owned across the whole of government. The vision recognises the evolving needs of partner countries and calls for more strategic partnerships in order to manage relationships as they transition beyond ODA. However, the vision is ambitious with many of the new focus areas not supported by strategies or guidance. Given the current capacity constraints within Camões I.P., Portugal could benefit from prioritising a few key areas for implementation and ensuring that these areas are supported by appropriate guidance.
