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 the United States' development co-operation

The institutional system for development co-operation in the US is marked by multiple actors, a myriad of initiatives and budget lines, a difficult authorising environment, and complex procedures. In order to deal with this complexity, concerted efforts have been made to give USAID a pivotal role in the development co-operation system. Although still a work in progress, USAID’s expanded capabilities are already making a positive difference.
