Joint Civil society submission to the 2017 High Level Meeting of the OECD Development Assistance Committee
Eurodad, together with 37 civil society organisations from around the world, has delivered a Joint Submission to the 2017 High Level Meeting of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), voicing concerns about proposed changes to the rules covering Official Development Assistance (ODA).
The letter covers the DAC’s revised mandate, the planned reform of ODA metrics and other statistical standards and transparency, accountability and outreach.
While the signatories represent diverse constituencies and areas of expertise from both the global south and north, they all have a common interest in ensuring that the work of the DAC in general, and ODA in particular, delivers a poverty-free, more equal world. Given that next week's meeting is a crucial milestone in achieving this objective, the document sets out detailed recommendations.
