The DAC: Enabling effective development
Through inclusive partnerships for development, the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) helps ensure better lives for people in the developing world by:
Understanding development finance
We monitor and share statistics as well as information on the architecture of official development assistance (ODA) and other flows of development finance to help ensure transparency and effectiveness.
Improving development policy
We draw on knowledge and experiences across the world and advise on diverse development policy issues, including: aid for trade, environment, gender equality, governance and peace, and poverty reduction.
Building partnerships for development
For 50 years now, the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) has grouped the world’s main donors, defining and monitoring global standards in key areas of development.
The Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD) supports the DAC, contributing to developing better policies for better lives through transparent data on development finance, and improved development co-operation practices and policies.
