We promote coordinated, innovative international action to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing countries and improve their financing. Supporting the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), we help set international principles and standards for development co-operation, and monitor how donors deliver on their commitments. Drawing upon the whole OECD expertise, we support members and partners with our data, analysis and guidance.
In DCD, we contribute to developing better policies for better lives by:
