The OECD 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.

Czech Republic aid reform paves way for more flexible and innovative development

The Czech Republic has become a more active and transparent development provider since overhauling its aid system and joining the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC). It should now focus on making sure its funds and expertise are used as effectively as possible, according to a new OECD Review.

The first DAC Peer Review of the Czech Republic says that despite its modest resources and limited presence on the ground, the country is proving a pivotal partner in less-developed countries in the Western Balkans and Eastern Europe by drawing on the experience of its own relatively recent transition to democracy and a market economy.

Active leadership in integrating the Sustainable Development Goals into Czech national policy

The Czech Republic is actively engaged at the highest political level in promoting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The process is led through the work of the Government Council for Sustainable Development which is chaired by the Prime Minister and supported by the Unit for Sustainable Development in the Office of the Government. This Council is co-ordinating efforts to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into national policy. The Government Council for Sustainable Development is also playing a key role, acting as a suitable platform for discussions on inter-ministerial issues and cross-cutting agendas.
