Development Assistance Committee Peer Review, Spain, 2016

The OECD DAC conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of its 29 members. The objectives of DAC peer reviews are to improve the quality and effectiveness of development co-operation policies and systems, and to promote good development partnerships for better impact on poverty reduction and sustainable development in developing countries. The review found that “Spain needs to fulfil its commitment to reverse decline in development aid. Spain’s gradual economic recovery should enable it to start reversing the sharp decline in its development assistance since 2010 and focus more of its aid budget on the least developed countries.”
