OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: United States 2016

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: United States 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 the United States' official development assistance

As the largest bilateral donor of the DAC, the United States’ official development assistance (ODA) constitutes a significant share of global development co-operation funding. Its ODA volume has been broadly maintained since 2010, despite falling by USD 2 billion in 2015 (in real terms) from a record high of USD 33.1 billion in 2014 – a 7% drop. However, US ODA levels have not matched its economic recovery. While transparency has increased, the unpredictable nature of US ODA creates uncertainties for its partners.
