The OECD/DAC sets priorities of the international development agenda, defines standards that are adopted by the development community, and leads the discussions concerning international cooperation.

Strategische Schwerpunkte der Schweiz und der Organisation und deren Kohärenz

The DAC is the body where all OECD countries meet with the purpose to develop guidance for all participating countries in order to increase development effectiveness. Due to its close linkages to the Global Partnership, the DAC is in a unique position to leverage its values to a wider range of actors, including emerging economies. Influencing this debate, sharing experiences and gaining best practices is highly relevant to SDC to assure both, that Swiss cooperation strategies adhere to best practices and that our experiences inform future standards and guidance of DAC member countries and beyond.

Resultate des Engagement der Organisation der vorangehenden Phase

DACs main focus in 2013-2014 laid in the area of development finance and the modernization of ODA. This is a crucial contribution to the financing of the post-2015 agenda.

Guidance delivered for the development of thematic and geographic strategies in the areas covered by DAC (e.g. peace and state building, climate change, governance, gender) are important inputs for Switzerland’s programmatic work.

Resultate des Schweizer Engagement der vorangehenden Phase

Modernized ODA measures and concept to capture public flows for development beyond ODA will be important in the context of the new Dispatch.

New actors and financial flows were included in the context of the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation.

The standing of the DAC within the OECD has significantly improved, due to the approved OECD Development Strategy with an increased emphasis on policy coherence.

Mittelfristige Wirkung des gegenwärtigen Engagements der Organisation

Due to strengthened linkages between the SDC and the DAC a) SDC programmes build upon best practices as identified by the DAC b) the DAC guidance takes into account SDC’s best practices where relevant.

The thematic guidance to be provided by the DAC will support Switzerland in operationalizing the emphasized elements in the new Dispatch on International Cooperation 2017-2020 and the implementation of the post-2015 agenda and Financing for Development. These include an increased focus on fragile contexts, the mitigation of global risks as well as greater emphasis on Policy Coherence for Development.
