OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Spain 2016

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Spain 2016

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.

Allocating Spain's official development assistance

Spain’s overall ODA volume has suffered a dramatic decline. At 0.13% of gross national income, it is at its lowest since 1988. Spain has committed to reversing the decline as its economy recovers – there is evidence that it is living up to that commitment in recent budget statements. The multilateral channel claims the lion’s share of ODA, with the bilateral channel bearing the brunt of cuts and ODA to the least developed countries at low levels. Spain needs to improve its ODA execution rate and reporting practices.
