OECD-DAC

Development Assistance Committee (DAC)

The bilateral donor community discusses the quality and quantity of the development assistance in the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

During the past few years, a staff member of the IEFI Administration’s bilateral entity has followed, among other things, the activities of DAC concerning:

  • the untying of aid;

  • the statistical charging of the debt relief;

  • the discount rate to be used to calculate the grant element;

  • the development assistance effectiveness.*

* these activities led to the “Paris declaration on aid effectiveness”.

The participation in the DAC’s activities occurs in collaboration and co-ordination with civil servants of the Directorate-General for Development Cooperation (DGDC) of the FPS Foreign Affairs.
