Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD-DAC)

Promoting dialogue beyond the DAC

 

There have been important shifts in the international development landscape over recent years. A range of non-DAC providers of development co-operation - including emerging economies, private philanthropies, and sector-specific funds - have rapidly increased support to developing countries. To encourage co-ordination and understanding, the DAC issued a statement welcoming non-DAC partners to engage in a mutual learning dialogue.

An open invitation to key partners

An open invitation is extended to OECD members who are not DAC members. Most already participate in the DAC's work on a daily basis.

Partners that have enhanced engagement with the OECD (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia and South Africa) or that are acceding to OECD membership (Russia, Colombia and Latvia) are invited to the DAC's annual Senior- and High-Level Meetings. 

 

Support to global dialogue initiatives

As part of our work on promoting partnerships for development, our Open Doors programme supports global dialogue initiatives, including

  • The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding: since 2008, it has worked to establish international objectives for peacebuilding and statebuilding in countries affected by conflict and fragility. The first such dialogue that gives fragile states a voice, it defines realistic objectives, sets the agenda for international support for peacebuilding and statebuilding, and helps ensure that the money that goes into fragile states meets specific needs.
  • OECD Global Forum on Development: Focus on domestic resource mobilisation

Dialogue on specific countries

Dialogue with specific countries includes:

  • Arab donors: At their Joint Meeting with Arab Co-ordination Group Institutions in Kuwait City on 10 May 2009, Arab Coordination Group Institutions (AGCI) and members of the DAC agreed on an Action Plan for Stronger Partnership.
    Against the backdrop of historic political change in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and in the run-up to the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea, the ACGI and the DAC met at the High-Level Partnership Dialogue in London on 4-5 July 2011. As a follow-up, a technical meeting on statistics was held in Kuwait on 12-13 October 2011, where the ACGI and the DAC agreed to collaborate to improve statistical reporting of aid flows from Arab donors.
    Members of ACGI and the DAC met in Kuwait, on 29 January 2014, to identify concrete actions for more effective co-operation and partnership at the Arab-DAC Dialogue on Development.

Dialogue on specific topics

Topical dialogue events have focused on:

In February 2010 in Moscow, discussions centered around new partnerships in international development finance.

We have also collected evidence on the common ground between the principles of different traditions of development co-operation. (pdf 386 kB)
