|The OECD supports NEPAD’s objectives in three areas:
- The African Peer Review Mechanism: NEPAD officials have seen the peer review methods used in the OECD as a major source of inspiration in preparing their own peer review mechanism (APRM), which is a major NEPAD priority. Steps have been taken to share the accumulated experience about best practice with regard to OECD peer review methods;
- Peer learning/policy dialogue in support of reform: The OECD’s methods, based on solid analysis, dialogue and co‑operation between decision‑makers, are designed to generate consensus on policy reform orientations. These methods, which OECD member countries have cultivated over the decades, are proving to be a useful adjunct to the assistance that is being provided to the NEPAD countries’ reform efforts by other international organisations.
- Mutual reviews of development effectiveness: In early 2004, African and OECD countries endorsed the establishment of the biennial ECA/OECD-DAC “Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness” in the context of NEPAD, a special consultation mechanism between African leaders and policy makers and their OECD counterparts. The report monitors performance and identifies good practice among African countries as regards political governance, economic governance and capacity-building and among OECD countries as regards ODA supply, aid quality including capacity-building, and policy coherence.
- Peer review: a tool for co-operation and change
