The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) represents the most developed countries of the world (development cooperation donors) and is considered the most important international forum for the coordination of development cooperation. The Committee monitors global development in a wider context and ensures the coherence of rules, while also providing strategic and statistical inputs necessary for the drafting and implementation of development cooperation rules and effectiveness. In 2010, the DAC assisted in the monitoring and assessment of the impacts of the global financial and economic crisis.
The Czech Republic actively participates in the activities of selected OECD/DAC working groups. Until present, the Czech Republic has maintained its observer status within the DAC. Due to historical reasons, only 23 OECD countries out of the total 34 and the European Union are members of the DAC. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic takes part in the DAC's activities, having access and contributing fully-fledged to OECD/DAC statistics, as well as Peer Review methodology and results.
