The OECD DAC welcomes Poland as its 28th member
Over the last few years, Poland has made considerable progress in structuring its development co-operation system. It now has a legal and strategic framework, as well as an institutional structure for providing development co-operation. In addition, a monitoring and evaluation system has been established and is now being strengthened. Poland has also progressively increased the volume of its official development assistance (ODA) to reach USD 438 million, or 0.09% of the country’s gross national income (GNI), in 2012.
At its meeting on 22 October 2013, the DAC invited Poland to join the Committee. Poland accepted this invitation the same day in a letter addressed to the OECD Secretary General in which it pledged to fulfil the obligations of DAC membership.
