OECD Development Assistance Peer Reviews: Spain 2011
Every four years, each of the 24 members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee
(DAC) with the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations
Development Programme as observers is scrutinised by its peers in the Committee.
Five different member countries are peer reviewed each year. The aim is to assess
the extent to which the development policies, strategies and activities of the reviewed
country meet the standards set by the DAC. Members provide constructive criticism
and recommendations based on a report that touches on aid policies, volumes, institutions
and field operations. There are no sanctions if the country fails to take the recommendations
on board. The exercise is meant to encourage positive change, support mutual learning
and raise the overall effectiveness of aid throughout the donor community.
