The DAC: Enabling effective development
Through inclusive partnerships for development, the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) helps ensure better lives for people in the developing world by:

We monitor and share statistics as well as information on the architecture of official development assistance (ODA), other flows of development finance and untied aid to help ensure transparency and effectiveness.
Improving development policy
We draw on knowledge and experiences across the world and advise on diverse development policy issues, including: aid for trade, environment, gender equality, governance and peace, and poverty reduction.
