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.



The United States' vision and policies for development co-operation

The 2010 Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development elevated development as a core pillar of US international engagement. Through this policy, which overarches all US development strategies and policy guidance, the US has set ambitious development goals aligned with its strategic national objectives of peace, security, global prosperity, universal values and human rights. The recent focus on ending extreme poverty as a global objective for US development co-operation is positive, but has not yet been fully operationalised.
