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.

Spain's development co-operation delivery and partnerships

Spain is clearly committed to the Busan principles for effective development co-operation. Flexibility in budgeting and programming, enhanced by AECID’s significant autonomy in partner countries and territories, helps Spain to be responsive to the needs of its partners and adjust its activities in a timely manner. Spain uses country systems when possible and uses conditionality sparingly. However, the low levels of disbursement affects results, programme management and budgeting. The absence of standard, streamlined procedures, even for risk analysis and oversight, can also affect efficiency and accountability.
