Peer reviews provide in-depth examinations of development systems and policies, including lessons learned, in the 24 DAC member countries.

What are countries doing to fulfill their development co-operation objectives and public commitments? Drawing on lessons from our peer reviews, we produce a range of publications that look at different aspects of this question. Managing Aid: Practices of DAC Member Countries is one example. Another is Effective Aid Management: Twelve Lessons from DAC Peer Reviews, designed to help aid practitioners improve their management and delivery of development assistance by learning from each others' experience.
Each DAC member country is peer reviewed roughly every four years with two main aims:
Led by examiners from two DAC member states, the process typically takes around six months to complete and culminates with the publication of the findings. Eighteen months after each review, the DAC Chair visits the reviewed country to check its progress in implementing its peers' recommendations.
