OECD Peer review of Australian Aid 2013


OECD Peer review of Australian Aid 2013

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 member are critically examined approximately once every four or five years. The objectives of DAC peer reviews are to improve the quality and effectiveness of development cooperation policies and systems, and to promote good development partnerships for better impact on poverty reduction and sustainable development in developing countries. 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 cooperation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.

This review contains the Main Findings and Recommendations of the Development Assistance Committee
and the report of the Secretariat. It was prepared with examiners from Canada and the European Union for
the Peer Review of Australia on 16 April 2013.
