OECD-DAC publishes peer review of Italian development cooperation

The Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-DAC) published Italy’s Peer Review. This is the first peer review after the comprehensive reform of the Italian cooperation system in 2014.

The report praises Italy as an active champion of the multilateral system, for its multi-stakeholder approach and its ability to undertake leadership in areas such as cultural heritage and agriculture projects. However, the latest DAC Peer Review notes that Italy could do more to consolidate its policy priorities, increase ODA, and ensure adequate staff capacity to deliver a growing and increasingly complex program.
