The DAC Development Debates (DDD) are hosted by the OECD Development Assistance Committee. These meetings allow the DAC, the Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD) and the OECD at large to exchange ideas with top development thinkers and practitioners. A diversity of topics are discussed, in particular topics where DAC/DCD intends to do upcoming work. DDDs are structured as follows: a leading development thinker presents his/her ideas on a topic and a high level development practitioner makes some comments based on the presentation before the floor is opened for questions and discussion. DAC delegates as well as DCD, Development Centre and other OECD colleagues are invited to attend.
