OECD Development Assistance Committee at 60

Virtual event – Tuesday 5 October 2021, 1-3pm (CEST)

"The ten founding members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) first met on 5 October 1961. Sixty years later, we are inviting leading figures in global development to share their views on what the Committee has achieved, where it could have done better, and what more needs doing".

“The DAC's 60th anniversary is a good moment to look back on what we’ve achieved, where we could have done better and forward to what more needs doing.  Like any 60 year old, the DAC has grown up, changed a great deal, at times become a bit set in its ways, but has also learnt to adapt, flex, respond to shocks, become less risk averse and better able to meet new challenges, incorporate new members and work with others.

Despite these changes, the DAC’s core values and mandate have stood the test of time. A growing number of now 30 donors, willing to compromise, collaborate, take risks, evolve, and learn from each other and from our mistakes, who work together to build consensus to deliver better development policy, practice and outcomes for poor people in developing countries.  The DAC’s basic mandate to help poorer countries create better lives for their people is as valid today as it was in 1961.”

Chair of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC),
