To provide advice in implementing the DAC's mandate to modernise development finance, an independent Expert Reference Group(ERG) was constituted to help shape the analytical work done by the DAC Secretariat. The group, comprising 15 senior level experts (ref. Annex 1), met three times on 3-4 October 2013, 23-24 January 2014 and 26-27 June 2014.
This report produced in co-operation with the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) identifies the misalignments between climate change objectives and policy and regulatory frameworks across a range of policy domains (investment, taxation, innovation and skills, trade, and adaptation) and activities at the heart of climate policy (electricity, urban mobility and rural land use).
Outside of countries’ core climate policies, many of the regulatory features of today’s economies have been built around the availability of fossil fuels and without any regard for the greenhouse gas emissions stemming from human activities. This report makes a diagnosis of these contradictions and points to means of solving them to support a more effective transition of all countries to a low-carbon economy.
Over the last two years the OECD DAC has intensified its efforts to capture the broad range of development instruments and packages. How to mobilise more and better resources for development has never been more pertinent than today as the global development community stands on the brink of the post-2015 era.
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 five years. 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 co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of the member under review.

This is the annotated agenda of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) & Environmental Policy Committee (EPOC) Joint Task Team Meeting on Climate Change and Development Co-Operation, which brought together experts, member and partner countries to discuss the wider context that will affect development co-operation in support of adaptation, and to focus also on the work areas identified at the 2014 Task Team meeting.
DAC statistics are primarily designed to measure donor effort. The following note describes the OECD DAC’s methodology for calculating imputed multilateral flows, that is imputing aid by multilateral bodies back to the funders of these bodies so that total donor outflows that can be assigned to an individual recipient.
