OECD DAC launches peer review report on Sweden's development cooperation
On June 12, 2019, Swedish development minister Peter Ericsson presented the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Development Assistance Committee (OECD DAC) peer review of Swedish development cooperation in Stockholm. The report commends Sweden for its consistently high levels of official development assistance (ODA) and leadership on peace and conflict prevention, environmental sustainability and climate change, and gender equality. Notably, 87% of Swedish ODA is geared towards contributing towards gender quality goals. The review also points to set of few recommendations where further improvements can be made, including stronger alignment between Swedfund, the Swedish development bank, and Sida, its development agency.
DAC peer reviews are conducted every five years.
