image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: The Netherlands 2017

The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each DAC member are critically examined approximately once every five years. DAC peer reviews assess the development co-operation performance across government of a given member and examine policy, finance and implementation. They take an integrated, system-wide view of the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities and seek input from a wide range of stakeholders – civil society, parliament, private sector and partner countries.

This review assesses the performance of the Netherlands, including looking at its integrated aid, trade and investment policy focus, and its approach to partnerships.


Results management and accountability of the Netherlands' development co-operation

The Netherlands is putting in place an ambitious new framework for tracking the impact of its development co-operation. The aim is to improve the use of information on its results for learning and decision making, as well as for accountability and communications. This is work in progress. The new framework should be flexible enough to align with partner countries’ own results frameworks. More work is needed to measure results in the field, disaggregate data on target beneficiaries, and ensure clear links between Dutch programmes and impacts.
