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.

Managing Spain's development co-operation

Spain recognises, and has tried to address, structural weaknesses in its institutional system. It has attempted to streamline management arrangements to ease co-ordination within MAEC. At a broader level, it has structures and tools to improve co-ordination between several governmental and non-governmental actors, both at headquarter level and in country offices. Indeed, there appears to have been a slight, though not yet significant, improvement in whole-of-government approaches. However, co-ordination efforts will need continued strengthening.
