DAC Peer Review of Denmark



Abstract: This review contains the Main Findings and Recommendations of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) and the report of the Secretariat. It was prepared with examiners from the Netherlands and Greece for the Peer Review meeting on 8 June 2007. Among the main issues covered were: the significant funding for official development assistance (ODA) and the welcome decision on the part of the Danish Government to maintain its ODA at a minimum of 0.8% of gross national income; the solid legal grounding, resulting from the long-standing support for development assistance; the integrated, decentralised, development co-operation system, which facilitates effective aid delivery and provides flexibility for aligning and harmonising programmes; the positive emphasis on quality assurance; the need to pursue Denmark’s efforts in meeting the commitments of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness; the need to further develop and disseminate learning both within and outside Danida, especially in areas of high interest for the donor community, like mainstreaming crosscutting issues, capacity development and decentralisation; and the need to make further progress on aid untying.
